Three Day Suspension of Garden Waste Collection

The national shortage of qualified HGV drivers is causing significant problems to both local authorities and private sector industry. In recent weeks, the Council has also been affected by these shortages which have been exacerbated by staff absences, including those caused by the pandemic.

All available resources are being deployed to waste collection but, unfortunately, these pressures have led to the Council making the difficult decision to cancel garden waste collections on a few days as follows:

  • Thursday 29th July 2021
  • Friday 30th July 2021
  • Monday 2nd August 2021
