Waste collection service under pressure

Residual waste, recycling and green waste weren’t collected from a number of properties yesterday.

The service performed well earlier in the year despite COVID resulting in some staff absences. Hopefully the Council will be able to cope with staff absences caused by the “second wave”. It is a vital service.
