This is affecting us all at work and at home. We’re working hard to keep services running and will focus our efforts on the most critical elements. In doing so disruption to many services is likely.Read our latest update
In the light of the challenges raised by COVID-19 (Coronavirus), the Council is working hard to ensure our waste and recycling service continues with minimal disruption.
However, our Waste Collection team are asking for support from residents to help the service run smoothly.
As we approach the virus’ peak, it’s likely that staff shortages caused by sickness or parental leave will increase. This will in turn place more pressure on the service
To help the Council continue to deliver the service, our waste and recycling team are asking residents to support them by following these short tips:
Cllr Patricia Hetherton, Cabinet Member for City Services said: “Our bin crews have been doing a fantastic job out on the frontlines during these challenging times. I know a lot of residents are really grateful to them and have been showing their support.”
“However, the best thing we can do to support them, is to help them do their job in an efficient and safe manner. By following these tips, you’ll go a long way to doing that.
“So please, be aware of how you’re filling your bins, be considerate of whether our crews can easily get into your street and please make sure you wash your hands”
