Calderdale Council is warning people not to go out where snow and drifts could be deep as they can be dangerous and exhausting to walk through. But they are encouraging people to be mindful of neighbours who may need extra help during the winter weather.

They say all teams are still out clearing roads.

Snow drifts block off small community at Soil Hill, Bradshaw.

The council says bin and recycling collection vehicles will continue to try to deliver a partial service today, with an instruction to start Wednesday’s scheduled collections and to go only where it is safe and to take no risks.

It added: “Any outstanding collections from last Friday and this Monday and Tuesday will be completed in due course/when weather conditions allow.

“Please place out all containers awaiting collection and if possible leave them out until we get to empty them.”

All Calderdale household waste recycling centres are open.

All crews are working clearing roads, so no salt bins are being filled at the moment.

Temperatures remain freezing.
