Park responsibly. More people staying at home has obviously led to more cars parked on residential streets, creating problems for waste drivers who can not access some roads.

Residents of Queen's Walk in Stamford, Lincolnshire stuck notes to their bins thanking refuse workers. That gradually faded away.

People are advised to recycle as much as they possibly can at home until further notice.

"Leaving waste outside the centres or anywhere else is classed as fly tipping and is a criminal offence for which people will be prosecuted", it said.

Carron McDiarmid says Highland Council is doing its best to maintain regular waste collections.

The council is reminding people that it has limited capacity in its collection vehicles and at waste transfer stations, and so it needs Dorset residents to help. If any members of your household are showing symptoms of Coronavirus, please double back your waste before you put it into your bins.

Household on-property inorganics collections beginning 26 March onwards have been postponed for the lockdown period.

The council will continue to work closely with Glasgow City Health and Social Care Partnership, NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde and Health Protection Scotland to monitor and respond to the national situation.

Bury Council said brown bin collections were cancelled this week and next "while we prioritise emptying grey, green and blue bins instead". Do not put any electrical items in any of your bins at home.

Where possible people should compost grass cuttings and hedge trimmings.
