Bin collections look set to return to normal from today following major disruption caused by the 'Beast from the East'. 

Residents are being urged to leave bins out today, with crews hoping to cover the bulk of collections on Monday and Tuesday. 

Garden and food faste collections are still being postponed, with the vehicles used to catch up on general waste and dry recycling collections. 

Heavy snowfall across the country last week saw thousands of school children enjoy a snow day as schools closed their gates and commuters struggle to get to work as the roads and public transport ground to a halt.
