Domestic refuse and recycling collections have been suspended across the whole of Ceredigion until further notice.
Ceredigion Council's Highways, Property and Works staff are working 24-hour shifts with refuse collection and other staff being redeployed to help with clearing secondary roads and pavements.
Residents are being asked to take back from the kerbside bags they have put out in the expectation of them being collected.
Many areas have not received their scheduled refuse collection in the last 24 hours but it's only today that a decision has been taken to suspend the service for the foreseeable future.
From Monday 11th Ceredigion's website will carry daily information noting whether or not services remain suspended.
