PremierLeague-News.Com - An increase in rubbish post-Christmas and crews self-isolating has put pressure on the service
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! West Berkshire Council has temporarily suspended garden and food waste collections to prioritise rubbish and recycling after 5,300 recycling collections remain outstanding. The service is struggling due to increased volumes of waste after the Christmas holiday period, at the same time a number of collection crews are self-isolating. The garden waste bin collection service will be suspended from Monday 18 to Friday January 29 2021. The council is asking residents whose garden waste is due for collection on or after January 15 2021 to not put their green garden waste bin out until service can be resumed again from February 1 2021. This change will also affect food waste collections because they are collected at the same time as garden waste. Councillor Steve Ardagh-Walter, Executive Member for the Environment at West Berkshire Council, said: “We have received tremendous support from West Berkshire residents over the past few weeks and I want to thank everyone for their understanding during this challenging time.

. “Our aim is that all waste collection services will be able to continue as normal once the service is reinstated by the end of January. Our contractor’s collection crews have continued to work hard throughout, keeping our waste services running and we would like to thank them for doing a great job.” The council has said that if your rubbish (black bin) or recycling (boxes and bags) is not collected as expected, then continue to leave it out and it will be collected as soon as possible. Wokingham Council also had to temporarily suspend garden waste collections last week due to a high number of Covid-19 cases amongst our waste collection contractor Veolia’s staff. However, collections have since restarted.
