Bins Uplift Disruption

Waste and Recycling staff who are members of the GMB trade union are to strike from Friday 26 August to Monday 29 August inclusive. A second strike is also scheduled to run from Wednesday 7 September to Saturday 10 September inclusive.

While we will do all we can to minimise disruption for residents and businesses during these times there will undoubtedly be an impact on collections scheduled for these days.

Our aim is to continue providing a collection service so would ask residents to present their bin as normal. If it is not collected within 48 hours residents should return their bin to their property and re-present it on the next scheduled collection date.
