    Default Bin collections suspended

    Green bin collections in and around Warwick, Leamington and Kenilworth to be suspended due to driver shortages

    The council says by suspending the service it will help the refuse and recycling services to continue as normal

    Green bin collections are due to be temporarily suspended in the Warwick District due to driver shortages.

    Warwick District Council has announced it will be suspending the service next week from October 25 to 29.

    The council says this will help the refuse and recycling services to continue as normal.

    Residents who are due to have their green waste collected during this period are being asked to re-present their bin for their next scheduled service (week beginning November 8).

    Cllr Alan Rhead, Warwick District Councilís portfolio holder for environment and neighbourhood services, said: "Along with other areas in the country our waste services contractor is finding the shortage of HGV drivers is affecting its collection services.

    "Under these circumstances we have agreed that priority must be given to the main waste and recycling collections for good public health and safety reasons."

    Although the council plans to recommence all services the week beginning November 1, any resident with excess green waste is advised to use their local Recycling Centre in Leamington or Kenilworth.

    Of course it'll fit, you just need a bigger hammer.

    I heard a report a couple of weeks ago that some lorry drivers are threatening to go on strike because the government's issuing visas to overseas drivers. They claim the overseas drivers will reduce their pay & benefits.
