In these challenging times we have to make difficult decisions. Waste is an essential service and we are doing all we can to continue collections during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak while protecting our staff and residents. We have made some immediate changes to our services and further changes will be introduced from Monday 30 March.
Full details are below.

FLASHING SPEED SIGN
After more than 12 months of discussions with South Glos, the Parish Council have finally managed to get a SID (speed indicator device) installed on the road through Hinton.
This sign will indicate the speed at which drivers approach the village and hopefully make them slow down.
This sign has been funded by the Community Benefit Fund.

Public urged to 'Be Winter Ready'
The electricity and gas networks have come together again to help members of the public prepare in case they have a power cut or gas emergency this winter through its annual 'Be Winter Ready' campaign, which is launching on 2nd December.
We’re contacting you as it would be great if you could help share this important information through your channels to help spread the word about the campaign.
While electricity supplies are very reliable, bad winter weather can cause damage and disruption. As the nights get colder and darker, the chance of experiencing severe weather becomes more likely. Storms, floods and other extreme conditions can cause damage to the electricity network and disrupt energy supplies.
We are therefore sharing this simple advice to help people prepare. To Be Winter Ready, we're urging the public to:
Know your free emergency numbers - in a power cut call 105 or, for a gas emergency, dial 0800 111999.
Prepare your home – keep a torch handy and get your appliances serviced by a Gas Safe registered engineer to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning. Vulnerable households can also get extra support by signing up to the Priority Services Register.
Keep your eyes open – keep an eye on the weather forecast and, if you have a power cut or a gas emergency, check on your neighbours.
The Community Benefit Fund has recently been used for several projects in the Parish.
The Parish Council have just completed the restoration of the bridleway that runs along the verge on Bride’s Hill in Hinton.
The area has been cleared, ditches piped in and a firm surface put down.
We hope this will make things much safer for walkers and horse riders in the area.
Hinton Common has recently been levelled and seeded with wildflowers.
If all goes well this should be a lovely sight in a few years and a source of food for bees, birds and insects.
The creation of the Dyrham and Hinton Parish Plan was inaugurated in 2013, supported by South Gloucestershire Council and the Dyrham and Hinton Parish Council.
