Bin collection dates and times are to change this week in some parts of Cornwall due to restrictions relating to the G7 Summit.

Those living in the immediate vicinity of the summit locations will be most affected, although people anywhere in the West Cornwall area could see some changes for this week.

It's as a result of the traffic management system in place, which severely restricts movements in and out of the St Ives, Carbis Bay and Lelant areas for the duration of the G7 Summit.

Waste collection day in these areas is usually a Friday, but this week that is the first day of the summit conferences, when world leaders will be meeting at the Carbis Bay Hotel to debate topics of the day.

As a result, people living within Lelant and Carbis Bay should already have received a letter explaining that the normal collection day this Friday has been postponed and has instead been changed to next Monday (June 14) for this week only.

However, anyone living in the West Cornwall area could still see variations in their collection times if they also usually get a bin collection on a Friday.

This should still take place, but could be much earlier in the day.

A Cornwall Council spokesperson said: "If you live outside the traffic management measures but within the West Cornwall area and your waste is usually collected on a Friday, your collection will go ahead on Friday, June 11, but could start at 6am, so please put your waste out the night before just to be safe.

"Waste collection times throughout Friday, June 11, may vary from the normal schedule."

The spokesperson added that anyone else in Cornwall should not be affected, however, saying: "We're not expecting any impacts on collection services in other areas of Cornwall."
