Some local bin collections will start earlier and finish later tomorrow to let staff attend a funeral.

Dacorum Borough Council has shared that residents in its area may need to make sure their bin is presented at the boundary tonight (February 1) to make sure it is collected tomorrow.

Anyone who has not had their rubbish collected by the usual time has also been asked to wait until after 5pm to report a missed collection, as their bin may be collected later.

In a post to social media, the council explained: “This will allow our waste services staff to pay their respects to a much-loved colleague at a funeral.

“Thank you very much for your patience and understanding.

“The staff member was a highly regarded colleague who worked for the council as a driver and loader for over 35 years.”

Locals commended the Dacorum Council for taking steps to allow their staff to pay their respects.

Dacorum Borough Council collects bins for parts of Kings Langley as well as Apsley, Chipperfield, Nash Mills, and Bovingdon
