The Council Waste Service Manager Graham Gosden says:
“We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause but would like to reassure residents that we do not plan to remove the garden waste bin service entirely but have had to reduce the collection rounds we provide because of the staff shortages we are experiencing at the moment. This has affected properties we would normally collect garden waste from on a Monday and Tuesday of this week. We will endeavour to catch-up on those missed across this weekend.
“MBC is doing its very best to deliver a normal garden waste service as the Council understands the environmental importance that it delivers to its residents, not only with regards to how the waste is recycled through composting but also the impacts of the carbon footprint if the service was to be removed altogether.”
The Council continues to monitor the situation on a day to day basis and apologises for any inconvenience caused to customers who are affected.
