The York Council is struggling ot deal with the volume of recycling and green waste being presented. In some areas this has been on the streets for over 48 hours. Household waste collection was up to date as of the end of work yesterday (Wednesday).

We think it is time for them to give more details of the issues that they face, the remedies being applied and the likely date when collections are expected to return to normal.

This is the update that they published today.

EARLIER: For the first time in several months the York Council failed to update its refuse collection report page yesterday. This prompted speculation that there were too many roads missed to be able to list them all.

The failure to list those streets where bins hadn’t been emptied also prompted questions about whether the promised “next day” emptying will actually take place.

Worst collection problems since 2012

There is a danger of a bow wave of failures extending into next week. Residents who have been storing green waste in gardens, pending the resumption of the emptying service, may already have refilled their bins.

For a Council which has been quick to issue “sound bite” media releases even when it had little of interest to report, this communications failure – on a key public service which everyone uses – is disappointing.

As well as the backlog in green bin emptying (put down to heavy bins) social distancing measures are blamed for a growing backlog in collecting recycling.

Recycling in over 10 streets in the Westfield/Foxwood area alone was not collected yesterday

Previously the Council had blamed vehicle failures and capacity issues for problems with the waste collection reliabily.

There have been calls for a change in top management at the Council or even for the service to be outsourced (AMEY provide the service in the Selby area)

Ironically, at the peak of the corona virus scare, household waste and recycling collection systems worked well.

More problems with waste collection in York today

Latest on waste collection in York

Important service update

Today crews have collected all scheduled household, recycling and garden waste and also collected the remaining garden waste bins in Middlethorpe

We have been able to access and clear all waste from Westwood Terrace today. We were not able to get into Jennifer Grove again (because of badly parked cars) and will re visit on Saturday.

We hope to collect any remaining garden waste towards the end of the week and continue into Saturday. If your bin has not been collected please leave it in place and we will collect it as soon as we can. Thank you for your patience.

 

Council fails to empty green bins in parts of Chapelfields area. Calling back tomorrow

The York Council has issued the following statement;

“It has clearly been a great week for gardening as we have struggled to keep up with all the garden waste that you put out for us. Unfortunately, we were unable to collect the garden waste from 50 – 60 and 49 – 59 Bramham Road and Marsden Avenue.

We were also unable to collect the recycling from around 35 properties on Chapelfields Road but this was because of roadworks. The properties affected are the odd numbered ones between the Bramham Road and Ridgeway junctions.

We could not get access to Walton Place to collect the green waste.

If you are affected by any of these matters, please put your recycling out by 7am tomorrow and we will endeavour to return and collect. We are very sorry for any problems that this may cause”.
