Waste Collection Headaches

Recycling bin

Recycling services are currently back on schedule. However, some collections may remain subject to delay and suspension due to driver and fuel shortages.

Current status of collections

  • recycling (green-lidded bin and green boxes) – collections running to schedule
  • in some areas, green boxes and green-lidded bins are being emptied by separate vehicles
  • food waste – collections running to schedule
  • refuse (black bin) – collections running to schedule
  • garden waste – collections have been suspended until further notice. Subscriptions will be extended for the period the suspension is in place

T&MBC are  desperately trying to recruit more drivers but there is a national shortage due to Brexit and Covid.  They have increased the pay in the hope of attracting more drivers and have asked staff to defer holidays.
