Chorley residents are being advised to leave their bins out for collection if they haven't been emptied today.
Heavy snow hit the borough overnight, which has led to significant delays across Chorley for motorists.
Subsequently, a Chorley Council spokesman has said "we may struggle to access all the roads due for bin collections today due to the snow and freezing weather".
They added: "If your bin isn't emptied today please leave it out and we will try again later in the day and/or tomorrow - please don't report it as a missed collection."
No details of the affected areas have been released yet.
