The snowy weather conditions in the borough meant council refuge trucks were unable to make bin collections in several streets today.

Boston Borough Council says the ‘hazardous road conditions caused by snow and ice’ made it too difficult for their 32-tonne refuge truck to gain access to certain areas.

The following roads were affected: Boston’s South Terrace, Bath Gardens, Rectory Road, River Way, Powell Street, Chapel Street, Tower Gardens and parts of Featherworks.

Fishtoft’s Old School Lane and Hobhole Bank.

Benington’s Crowhall Lane, Spicers Lane, Sea Lane and Lambs Lane.

Butterwick’s Sea End Road.

Leverton’s Main Road, Lentons Lane, Lucasgate, Sheepgate and Oldfield Lane.

Old Leake’s Hamptons Lane and Hurns End Road.

Alfred Street was not collected due to ‘a car blocking the road’.

The council says it will re-attempt collections ‘when safe to do so’.
