Due to a UK-wide shortage of HGV drivers affecting numbers of staff available, we were unable to collect any brown bins during the week from 19-23 September.
From Monday 26 September to Friday 30 September there will be no blue bin collections. We will collect green/grey bins and brown bins from every household – that means 'Week 1' and 'Week 2' households will all have brown bins collected.
From Monday 3 October, brown bin collections will be suspended until further notice for all households. Food and other waste that could make a bad smell can be put in your green/grey bin. We will collect blue bins and, until Friday 7 October, up to 2 clear plastic bags of recycling side waste – please flatten your side waste as much as possible.
We apologise for any inconvenience. Please share this information with friends and neighbours in Thurrock. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
