After a number of issues with bin collections, Thurrock Council has decided to hit the refresh button to get back on track.
This is going to mean some changes over the coming weeks:
- blue recycling bin collections will be temporarily suspended between Monday 26 September and Friday 30 September – residents should try to flatten recycling waste as much as possible during this time
- all brown garden waste bins and green/grey general refuse bins will be collected between Monday 26 September and Friday 30 September – this includes brown bins from both 'Week 1' and 'Week 2' fortnightly collections
- from Monday 3 October, brown bin collections will be temporarily stopped for all households – food and other waste that could make a bad smell can be put in with general refuse in the green/grey bin
- 2 additional clear bags of recycling side waste will be collected between Monday 3 October and Friday 7 October
Cllr Andrew Jefferies, Cabinet Member for the Environment and Air Quality, said: "We apologise for these temporary changes and look forward to getting back on track. We ask residents to help share this update with friends and neighbours in Thurrock."
