Green bin collection suspended

Published: 21 July 2021

West Berkshire Council has decided to suspend the collection of garden and food waste in green bins until 3rd August.

The decision has been taken because of staff shortages caused by a number of waste truck drivers and operatives having been advised to self-isolate by the Covid-19 track and trace system, plus the impacts of the current nationwide HGV driver shortage. Suspending the garden waste collection service will free up more crews to cover the household waste (i.e. black bin) collection service.
