As of today the Council has brought in another firm to collect trade waste - which has been a major problem in the Southside & Newington ward. Here is the latest council release:
TRADE WASTE COLLECTIONS
Commencing this morning (Monday 27 July), the Council has contracted an external company to collect the city's trade waste. This is necessary due to refuse collectors in the city not working normally for the past four weeks. Trade Waste staff have been redeployed to start clearing the backlog of domestic waste.
Some businesses have already taken their trade waste business elsewhere and there is a real risk of other companies doing likewise – this would have significant financial implications for the Council and could lead to job losses.
Trade waste customers are being advised to present their waste as normal for pick-up.
