Weather impact update; Doncaster (18 – 21 February 2022)

Residents are advised to stay safe this weekend and avoid all non-essential travel.

The Situation

Residents are advised to stay safe this weekend and avoid all non-essential travel.
The Met Office have issued an AMBER weather warning for wind in Doncaster from 05:00 – 21:00 on Friday 18 February 2022. This could result in:

  • Flying debris
  • Damage to buildings
  • Transport disruption
  • Potential power cuts
  • Falling branches / uprooted trees

Waste & Recycling

Our waste contractors SUEZ are collecting bins as per schedule. Please ensure your bins lids are shut and bring your bin in from the kerbside as soon as possible after it is emptied. Check your bin collection day here.
Weather conditions are continually being monitored. If it is deemed unsafe for the collection crews, then there is a possibility that rounds may be temporarily suspended.

Due to the strong winds, it is inevitable that some bins may be blown over. Please assist our services by cleaning up any waste. This would be a great help and would make the borough tidier much quicker if everyone does their bit. More information is available here: Waste and recycling

Public transport

Residents are advised not to travel unless absolutely necessary. If you do travel, please check that services are running prior to commencing your journey. Some transport providers have already advised that there is disruption.

Roads

If you do travel, please drive carefully and be mindful of other motorists and pedestrians. There are areas with significant surface water, which can be dangerous.
Please plan your route in advance and leave extra time to complete your journey.
