Potential disruption from Storm Eunice tomorrow (Friday)
Published: Thursday, February 17, 2022
Wandsworth residents are urged to take care tomorrow as very high winds are predicted to affect London due to Storm Eunice.
There will be some changes to scheduled refuse collections to mitigate any potential risk to people or property.
Winds are predicted to increase in speed throughout the morning and reach a peak between noon and 4pm. Therefore, refuse crews will attend scheduled collections earlier than usual. Please do not put your refuse out tonight, but as early as possible tomorrow morning, and please leave it in your front garden if possible. Do not put it on the pavement.
If you are unable to do this, please leave your refuse out for collection on Saturday instead and the council will arrange additional collections.
The council will monitor the impact of the storm and send additional street cleaners out if necessary.
The borough’s parks will remain open but residents are urged to take extreme care.
The council will have a team on standby to deal with any fallen trees. They can be contacted on 020 3959 0071/0070 during office hours. Outside of these times contact the Wandsworth Emergency Control on 020 8871 7490.
The Met Office has put out an amber weather alert. Find out more here.
It recommends taking precautions before the storm hits, including securing loose objects such as ladders and garden furniture and tightly fastening doors and windows. Read more.
