Councillors had this message from officers today:
We have had a large number of waste collection vehicle breakdowns in both districts today, which means Biffa’s crews are behind on their collections.
Our advice to residents is to leave their bins out tomorrow if we haven’t emptied them today. If any collections are disrupted tomorrow or later in the week due to these breakdowns, our advice will be for residents to leave their bins out the following day.
Biffa are due to get a brand new fleet of vehicles later in the year, which will mean significantly fewer issues related to vehicle breakdowns.
