We’ve tried hard to keep the garden waste collection service running as normally as possible over recent weeks but we’ve now had to make the difficult decision to stop.
Recycling and black bin waste collections continue as normal. Neighbouring councils suspended their services earlier in the summer but we’ve continued collections - with limited disruption - until now.
However, we’ve reached the point where the national shortage of drivers means we can’t provide all services.
HGV driver recruitment is an issue affecting the whole country.
We’re working hard to fix the situation locally and we’re also lobbying government to resolve this national crisis.
