Brown Bin Collections Suspended for 1 Week.

HBBC have announced a one week suspension of the collection of brown garden waste bins between 23rd July and 30th July.

Garden waste collections (brown lidded bin) in Hinckley and Bosworth are to be suspended for one week as a result of rising numbers of waste drivers and crew told to self-isolate by NHS Test and Trace and the national shortage of HGV driver's.

It is hoped the move will ensure that all residential (black bin) and recycling (blue lidded bins) rounds will be completed in full as normal. Similar decisions are being taken by councils across the country faced with a similar position. More »

Bill Crooks, the Borough Council's Executive Member for Street Scene Services, said: "Unfortunately a significant number of our waste collection crews have received notification from the NHS test and trace service to self-isolate, this alongside isolation due to family members contracting coronavirus means that it will not be possible to deploy a full collection service.

"This is not a decision taken lightly and those affected will have their garden service extended by one week to cover this disruption. These are exceptional circumstances and I would like to thank residents for their patience." » Less

Get the COVID jab this weekend in Hinckley

Anyone who has not yet been vaccinated or who is due their second dose of the Covid-19 vaccine can get a jab at Hinckley Leisure Centre this Sunday and Monday (11 and 12 July).

No appointment is necessary, anyone aged over 18 who has not yet been vaccinated or who has received their first vaccination at least eight weeks ago is eligible to drop in and get a jab.

Remember, HBBC employees do not need to book leave when getting a vaccine during working hours, but please advise your manager as you would for any other medical appointment. More »

The drop in sessions are open this Sunday 11 July from 9am to 7pm and on Monday 12 July from 8am to 6pm at Hinckley Leisure Centre. The Pfizer and AstraZeneca vaccines are available at both sessions.

Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland residents are urged to go and get their jab in the next two weeks, as the local NHS scales up the number of vaccine opportunities ahead of the 19th July date proposed for Covid restrictions to be lifted.

All the vaccines protect against both catching and passing on the virus, so the more people who are fully vaccinated now, the safer it will be as restrictions hopefully lift later this month. In fact, the more people vaccinated the more likely it is restrictions will be lifted.

Taking action now will give everyone the confidence to make the most of the freedom of getting back to normal: going on holiday abroad, enjoying large gatherings such as sporting events, weddings and concerts, or just meeting up with friends and family in larger groups.

There are three ways to get your jab in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland:

1. National Booking Service: Visit www.nhs.uk or call 119. In Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland appointments are available to book at the Peepul Centre, the Hospital Hubs, Pharmacies and Sturdee Road Health and Wellbeing Centre.

2. Your GP Practice: If your GP practice is offering vaccines, they will contact you to let you know you can book an appointment.

3. Drop-in clinic: Drop-in clinics are opportunities for you to call in to get vaccinated without making an appointment.

In recent months, drop-in clinics have been used successfully locally to make it as convenient as possible for people to get the jab, many operating during evenings and weekends.

If this weekend isn't convenient then dates for further drop-in clinics across the county are updated on the Leicestershire NHS website: https://bit.ly/GetVaxxedLLR » Less
