TWBC have confirmed that Urbaser are now in a position to restart the garden waste collection service. Collections will recommence based on the existing collection schedules, from 18 May.
The six core collection rounds will be supported by two additional crews during the first two collection cycles to help with the high volumes of garden waste that are expected as all bins are likely to be full.
TWBC have stated that they will not be collecting extra waste that is put out. As this is likely to swamp the service in terms of volume and time to complete the rounds,residents will be advised to hold on to this and put out in their bin over future collections.
Garden waste subscribers will be sent an email this week to confirm the restart and an extension to their current subscription to cover the missed weeks.
