COLLECTIONS of garden waste will resume again this week after services were suspended during the bad weather.

The heavy snow and ice meant that bin crews had to focus on clearing a huge backlog of household waste.

Brown bins can now be put out on the same day as recycling, as indicated on the Christmas and new year collection schedule.

Thame Town Council said that a “reasonable amount” of extra garden waste can be left out to make up for the disruption.

Christmas trees can be left next to the brown bin to create more space for garden waste.

Normal services will resume on January 24.
