Update on disruption to waste services: recycling collections suspension extended

Due to further industrial action confirmed by the GMB Union, we have made the difficult decision to extend our suspension of recycling collection services until the week of 4 April. This does not affect household waste or garden waste collections, which will continue.

The GMB Union, which is in dispute with our contractor Hills Municipal Collections, has confirmed they will be striking until at least 2 April.

This means that recycling collection services won’t resume until the week of 4 April, and not the previously stated 21 March. Please do not put your blue lidded bins and black boxes out until your next collection day from 4 April onwards.
