Update on waste collections

Thanks folks for your patience – it is really appreciated.

We are getting there! Most of the brown bins rounds were completed by end of the day on Thursday.

The crews spent today (Friday) trying to clear the backlog of uncollected green/ recycling waste.

They will also be out tomorrow (Saturday) in an effort to complete the week’s work, although as staff are being deployed in other locations, such as Ocean City Sounds, we cannot guarantee that all the recycling will be collected.

If you have not had your green bin picked up, please leave it out again. We are aiming to have it all collected by Tuesday evening.

We are sorry for the inconvenience this has caused our residents but our crews are working extremely hard to catch up.

A number of refuse trucks were taken off the road and subject to stringent checks by the vehicle’s manufacturer as well as an independent verifier following two separate fires.

We are now satisfied that the fleet can go back on the road and we will be fully operational on Monday.
