Disruption to waste and recycling collections on Wednesday 5th October - Update

Despite the Industrial Action taken by the GMB Union today, disruption to black bin collections has been minimal with 98% of the collections completed. We will now be working hard to collect all remaining black bins and all recycling containers as quickly as possible.

We appreciate that the delay in collections may have caused an inconvenience to some residents and we apologise for this. We would also like to thank everyone for their patience whilst we are clearing the backlog.

We will be sending extra crews out on Thursday, Friday and Saturday to empty all remaining black bins, blue bins, boxes and green bins. Please leave your containers out until they have been emptied.

Collections from Thursday 6th October onwards should not be affected by this industrial action.

All Household Waste Recycling Centres are unaffected by the industrial action and remain open as normal, 10am – 4pm.

We will provide service updates on our website at www.veolia.co.uk/sheffield and via Twitter @Recycle4Shef.

The Veolia Call Centre is open 8am to 6pm Monday to Friday on 0114 273 4567.
