Coronavirus symptoms and black waste collections
Double bag waste if anybody in your household has coronavirus symptoms, and leave it for 72 hours before presenting as part of your usual black collection.
We would like to make customers aware...
We are currently struggling to maintain scheduled collections due to both crew needing to isolate and also due to the national shortage of HGV drivers.
Some councils have taken the difficult decision to suspend garden waste collections to focus on other collections however our dedicated crews have decided they will work longer hours to ensure they can collect as much as possible.
We would like to apologise in advance for those who we have missed and hope you understand our current struggles.
If we have missed you, please leave your bins out for 5 working days and we will try our very best to return. If we have been unable to return in those 5 days, we apologise greatly and ask that your bins are presented at your following collection where we will take a reasonable amount of waste.
Unless you have had multiple missed collections, which we may need to investigate, we are politely asking customers to not call or report the issue but instead check our webpage for the latest updates.
Again we apologise for any inconvenience caused and thank you for your patience.
