PIllar-boxes – no timetable? A “priority” label?

Members have been concerned that some pillar-boxes now have no collection timetable but bear a sticker claiming to be a “priority” box – a report has been received of some residents declining to use one such pillar-box as they were unsure whether it was still in use.

Rest assured, these are indeed still in use – they have been designated as “priority” because they will be cleared at the end of each day, the “priority” aspect being for delivery of samples etc. to the NHS and connected bodies, all arising as part of the response to Covid-19.

The change is a temporary one while the pandemic lasts.
