Snow and ice heading for Silsden next!

After Silsden spent much of the weekend on flood alert, forecasters are predicting snow and ice for West Yorkshire over the next 36 hours.

Bradford Council says bin collections scheduled for Tuesday should go ahead as planned, provided the weather doesn’t deteriorate drastically overnight on Monday.

Crews will lay bins on their side after emptying them to reduce the risk of them blowing into the road – and the council wants residents to take their wheelie bins back to their property at the earliest opportunity.

We’re also being asked to help elderly or infirm neighbours to get their bins back home.

Cllr Sarah Ferriby, Bradford Council’s Executive Member for Healthy People and Places, said: “At times like this we all need to look out for our neighbours and our bin crews will be on the alert for any problems the weather can throw at us. We are sure that neighbours will also be more than willing to help each other while the weather remains difficult.”

Bin crews will also be on the lookout for any problems such as flooding, unsafe property or trees and residents who need help because of the bad weather.

The council says its gritters will be out on high level roads from 6pm on Monday, and two night patrols will monitor the roads overnight from 10pm.

You can sign up for winter alerts and see the latest information about gritting on the council website.

A Met Office yellow warning is in place for snow and ice until Midday on Wednesday (12th February). Forecasters say heavy snow showers and icy surfaces are likely to lead to travel disruption – including longer journey times by road, bus and rail.
