Refuse collection across Lincolnshire has been affected due to snow.

In North Kesteven District Council all refuse and recycling has been suspended for the day.

South Kesteven District Council have also cancelled recycling collections for today and the bins will now not be collected for two-weeks until the next scheduled collection dates.

SKDC advised residents that extra recycling bags can be collected from the local office and that recycling can be placed in any colour bag other than black.
