FROM Monday Fife Council will resume collecting brown bins every two weeks in the Cowdenbeath-Lochgelly area.

The local authority is collecting all blue, green and grey bins as normal and starting from June 1, brown bins will return to a fortnightly collection. Currently if you've any concerns about excess food waste, please place this in your blue landfill bin.

A member of the council's environment and protectives services department said that the local authority is trying its best to collect all bins but if your bin is out and it has not been collected please leave out and they will try their best to return. Please continue to put your bins out for 6am on your collection day.

They also ask that you look out for your neighbours and check that they can put their bins out. It may not be possible to come back for missed bins until your next scheduled collection day.

Sandy Anderson, Service Manager thanked residents for their patience saying: "Thank you for your continued understanding and co-operation. We're pleased to be returning the brown bin collection to normal from June.

"We’re providing the best service we can with what we have."
