Residents warned of continued garden waste disruption

People living in Burbage, Hinckley, Groby and Ratby may not receive a garden waste (brown lidded bin) collection next week and on Bank Holiday Monday due to ongoing HGV driver shortages.

Garden waste collections are still going ahead in all areas of the borough next week, however the council continues to warn that it only has sufficient HGV drivers available to complete around 75% of the rounds in Burbage (Monday 25 August), Hinckley (Wednesday 26 and Thursday 27 August) and Groby and Ratby (Bank Holiday Monday 30 August) which will result in some garden waste collections being missed.   Any garden waste not collected next week cannot be collected until the next scheduled collection days in two weeks’ time.

Matthew Bowers, Director (Environment & Planning) at the Borough Council said: “We apologise to all those customers affected, and assure anyone affected their subscription will be will be extended to cover this disruption. Unfortunately due to the ongoing shortage of HGV drivers and driver/crew sickness we just don’t have sufficient staff to complete all the rounds next week or on Bank Holiday Monday. Once again we thank you for your patience at this difficult time.”

Residents across the borough are urged to present their garden waste bins as usual and the available crews will endeavour to service as many bins as possible. All other refuse and recycling collections in the borough will be completed as usual.

Residents are reminded that the recycling centres are open and residents do not need an appointment to attend.
