Ipswich Borough Council gritters have been out throughout the town, while refuse crews have been battling through the snow to collect bins wherever possible.
The majority of black and blue bins were collected yesterday, however some side roads are still causing us problems with snow and ice. Brown bins unfortunately will not be collected again today, however this service will resume tomorrow with normal Thursday collections.
The message is: If your brown bin wasn't collected this week it will not be collected until week commencing 4th February, but please make sure you leave your blue and black bins out until we are able to empty them.
To check on gritting operations go to Suffolk County Council - Road Gritting and Road Salting.
The gates are now open to all of our cemeteries.
Parks are open but the Council has issued a warning to people not to walk across the ponds - what could look like fun could turn into an accident. Notices are displayed but parks bosses have reminded everyone that ponds are dangerous areas,especially for children. The Council is also advising residents and visitors to take care on any untreated pavements or paths.
To prevent damage due to frozen pipes the Council has temporarily closed the toilets in Murray Park, Gippeswyk Park, Bramford Lane Rec, Castle Hill Rec, and Dumbarton Rd Rec.
The Shopmobility service at the Buttermarket Shopping Centre has re-opened today.
