Refuse collections stall

Some refuse workers have begun an unofficial work to rule as part of their bargaining over the implementation of a revision of pay grading.
  • Garden waste – experiencing severe delays
  • packaging banks – are being emptied at a reduced frequency so the public may find some bins are full
  • on street refuse bin – being emptied at reduced frequency
  • domestic wheelie bins- some delays but not as badly affected as some other services
  • domestic black bag collection- some delays but prioritising this collection because of increased litter potential from burst bags
  • trade Waste – severe delays
  • paladin bins (high rise) - are being emptied at a reduced frequency so the public may find some chutes are closed off to prevent blockages and risk of fire.

The Council website will contain regular updates and, where possible, advise on revised collections.
