More bad news on refuse collection in York. There are delays in collecting recycling, emptying green bins and removing some household waste across significant parts of the City
Some recycling has been out on the streets for 3 days now.
The Council says that it will work through today and tomorrow (Saturday) to clear the backlog.
The Council has also been urged to provide an update on the capacity and use of its bulky waste removal service which was restarted last week.
Similar information about the availability of “booking slots” at household waste sites like Hazel Court might help to reduce demands on the collection service.
The Council has said,
