What happens if the material in my garden waste bin(s) freezes?

Due to the high water content of material in garden bins we occasionally find bins that have frozen during cold spells. When water freezes it expands so the material is stuck fast against the sides of the bin. This may prevent the emptying of the bin. Where possible we will check back later in the day, but as British weather is so unpredictable it may be not be possible to empty the bin until the next scheduled collection day.
