Service disruption due to severe weather

When weather conditions are bad, some of our services such as bin collections may change and updates about that will appear on this page.


Priority routes include main A and B roads, and school entrances. The A12, A127 and A13 will be gritted by Transport for London.

There is more information on our gritting page.

Recycling and rubbish collections

In the event of heavy snow, your rubbish and recycling collections may be impacted.

However there is currently no impact on the service.

School Closures

Please check individual school websites for information on school closures.


Many transport services can be affected such as buses and trains.

There are online resources for roads such as Google Maps and Essex Highways giving updates on queues and traffic.
