This means only essential council services will be operating on this day, such as vital social care and emergency housing repairs.

All other council services and public facilities, such as partnership centres and recycling centres, will be closed.

All West Lothian schools are already closed to pupils on Friday 16, Monday 19 and Tuesday 20 September. Early Learning Centres will now also close on Monday 19 September, with parents/carers already notified.

There will be no bin collections taking place on Monday 19 September, so any household with a scheduled grey bin collection for that day should put them out for 7am on Tuesday 20 September instead.

Any householders with green or blue collections scheduled for Monday 19 September should put them out on Wednesday 21 September instead.

Extra resources are being used to ensure bin collections are completed as soon as possible, but residents are advised to leave their bins out until they are emptied.

Please note there will be no brown bin collections between 19 and 21 September to allow resources to be reprioritised.

The social care emergency team (SCET) will be available as always on 01506 281028 or 01506 281029 for anyone who need urgent assistance from social work or partners. Their priority will be any issues around child and adult protection, statutory mental health assessments and family or care breakdowns.
