Advice for missed scheduled collections

Last updated: 5.15pm, Thursday 21 October 2021

Thank you for your patience while we introduced our new collection rounds. We have been monitoring the rounds daily and our analysis shows that most of the new routes are running well. There are a few which we are reviewing that may need minor adjustments but we have made some changes to keep missed collections to a minimum.  

Please be aware that currently there is a local and national shortage of HGV drivers and agency cover.  This is impacting our ability to keep all collections on track when our staff are not in work or on holiday. Where we can, we are moving drivers off other work to help, but this isn't always possible.

Thank you for your continued patience as we strive to provide you with a quality service at this difficult time. 

If a collection has been missed in your street, please follow the advice below.
