Waste & recycling update Monday 26 July

The suspension from today of food waste collections as a temporary measure has freed up teams to enable all other scheduled rounds to take place today, including some catch-up and bin delivery crews.

A reminder that you need to mix your food waste in your usual household waste (grey) bin - or sacks (if you're not on a bins round).

To help prevent animals ripping open sacks in search of food waste, residents on sack rounds can put your usual food caddy out alongside your refuse sacks if you wish, but food inside the caddy does need to be contained within a sealed bag.

While all scheduled rounds are underway today, unfortunately this doesn't mean all rounds will necessarily be completed - this is due to the sheer volume of waste, which is filling trucks more quickly than is the case in normal circumstances as crews clear the backlog.

We apologise again for the current situation.

All other emergency measures we originally announced just over a week ago - including not collecting excess recycling and not returning for missed collections after 4 days - are now *on hold* pending decisions to be made by councillors on Tuesday this week at an extraordinary meeting of the council.. There's more detail about this here.
