West Berkshire's bin collections will start an hour earlier this week as the country continues to bask in a summer heatwave.

Rubbish and recycling will be collected from 6am from tomorrow (Wednesday, July 25) until the end of the week.

West Berkshire Council said the change was due to the very hot weather and added that the move will ensure that the "collection crews can avoid being out in the heat during the hottest part of the day".

In a statement it urged residents to "please put your bins out before 6am and let your neighbours, friends and family know that we’ll be collecting earlier".

You can find more information on waste collections on the council's Facebook page @recyclewestberkshire or website

    Council mollycoddling again. The rest of us will still be working our regular hours as usual though.

    Don't want their lorries falling into collapsed culverts underneath the roads, or as the Daily Mail sensationally and inaccurately, put it - falling into melted roads!
