A DELAY distributing new bin collection calendars left residents feeling blue as well as green, brown and black over the festive period.
But any remaining confusion should soon be cleared up after Oldham Council confirmed it was aware of recent issues.
The previous bin calendar covered the period October 2017 to the end of November 2018.
But some areas of the borough, including large parts of Saddleworth, were still without an updated schedule for 2018/2019 as the Independent went to press.
A spokesperson for Oldham Council admitted: “We are aware some residents across parts of Oldham – Saddleworth being one – didn’t receive their new calendars.
“Residents in the areas affected will start receiving their new calendars from Monday, January 14.
“In the meantime residents can contact our waste management service on 0161 770 6644 to make them aware that their address hasn’t received a new calendar.
“They can check bin collection dates online – www.oldham.gov.uk/info/200295/collection_days – until their new calendar arrives.
“They can also download the free Recycle for Greater Manchester (R4GM) app to check bin collection dates.”
