Rubbish and recycling collections

Rubbish and recycling collections are being severely impacted by the HGV driver shortage.

Driver shortage impacts waste and recycling collections

Collections of recycling and general waste continue to be impacted by a national shortage of HGV drivers. We are working with our collection contractor, Veolia, on a daily basis to review driver numbers and put as many crews out as possible. Despite this, some collections are taking place later than scheduled.

Update: Monday 27 June

We are currently completing most collections on their scheduled day so please continue to put your bins out for collection on your normal day. If your collection is missed, please leave your bins out and we will get to you as soon as possible.

Some rounds have not been dispatched today. We are sorry for the inconvenience caused. Collections scheduled for today in the following areas are most likely to be impacted. These will be collected as soon as possible:

  • Recycling in CR0 and CR2
  • Refuse in CR0, CR3, CR5 and CR8

If your entire street is not collected

If your street is not collected on schedule, please don’t report this as a missed collection. Leave your waste and recycling out and our crews will try to get to you as soon as possible.

If other properties on your street are collected

Please continue to report individual missed collections - where crews collect from other properties on their street but miss yours - in the same way as usual.
