Disruption to waste services in Dorset
As you may already be aware, the effects of the widely-reported national HGV driver shortage – coupled with the continuing impact of the pandemic – are starting to disrupt some of our waste services.
We are working hard to ensure that key waste services continue to run throughout this challenging time, but we are having to temporarily suspend or delay some garden waste collections so that crews can be redeployed to support vital rubbish, food and recycling collections. Litter bins are also being emptied less frequently in some areas of the county, and new bin deliveries are also being delayed.
While we continue to work on tackling the problem, I would greatly appreciate it if you could pass these key messages to any residents who may approach you with questions or concerns around their bin collections: –
If there are any further questions or comments please contact the Dorset Council waste services team at email@example.com. If anyone is interested in joining our waste services as a driver or a loader, they can find out more about current vacancies at <a href=”https://jobs.dorsetcouncil.gov.uk/”>https://jobs.dorsetcouncil.gov.uk/
We will keep providing updates as the situation changes, and continue to speak with MPs to work on a long-term solution.
