Garden waste collections suspended
As you may already be aware, we had to delay the restart of the garden waste collection service after the usual Christmas break.
The extended pause is as a result of some staff sickness due to Covid-19 and others having to self-isolate.
We have reviewed the staffing levels and unfortunately we will not be able to restart the service this week, and are currently unable to predict accurately when it will resume.
Despite this setback we are confident that we can honour our commitment to providing the 20 collections a year we offer for this paid for service. We are normally able to offer more collections than this with our extra-large garden waste collections in the Spring and Autumn, and don't envisage this year being any different, so nobody should be out of pocket.
We will review the situation on a week by week basis, and we will let you know as soon as we are in a position to restart the service. We will keep you updated via our garden waste pages and on our social media sites.
