frost on a wheelie bin

Thick fog delays some garbage collections

THE Derwent Valley Council has advised that some bins in the Black Hills area have not been emptied this morning due to thick fog in the area.

“Veolia has advised that due to very thick fog in Black Hills this morning, it was unsafe to service the last few homes in the street as the truck is not visible to other road users when turning around,” a Derwent Valley Council spokesperson posted on Facebook. “For those homes missed, Veolia have advised they’ll empty your bins tomorrow. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.”

Much of the Derwent Valley has woken to another morning of fog, with the temperature still hovering around zero at Bushy Park and Ouse at 11am. It is six degrees warmer in the highlands at Butlers Gorge and Liawenee. The Bureau of Meteorology does not conduct weather observations at New Norfolk, where today is forecast to have a maximum temperature of 12 degrees after the morning frost.

The road weather alert for the Derwent Valley, Central Plateau, Midlands and South East forecast districts has been cancelled, but the BOM will continue to monitored the situation and further alerts will be issued if necessary. For information on any road closures, contact your local council or the Police.
