Like lots of Councils and businesses we have increasing numbers of our crews who are currently not in work due to either a positive Covid test, or a Track and Trace instruction to self-isolate. We are doing everything we can to cover collections across all services, but staff availability is changing hour by hour, even during the working day.
Staffing shortages last week meant that some flats and schools did not get their scheduled recycling collection. We will do our best to recover the situation at the end of this week. However, if staffing continues to be a problem, we may be unable to return until the next scheduled collections, which will be in the week commencing 2 August.
