Nottinghamshire councils update residents on household waste strike

From 24 September to 8 October, operatives at Veolia, contractors that dispose of kerbside waste in Nottinghamshire will be taking strike action, in a dispute between staff and Veolia management.

Mansfield District Council provided this update for residents:

‘Veolia is working to ensure their sites remain open for waste collection vehicles to dispose of household and trade waste, to minimise disruption on the service for residents.

‘Residents can be assured that the disposal of glass recycling and garden waste is not impacted by this industrial action but, trade and household waste (green bin) and mixed recycling (blue bin) may be affected.

‘Customers should be aware that the strike action is discontinuous meaning some days may be more affected than others. The council will endeavour to work with the county council and other partners to keep disruption to a minimum.

‘Ashfield residents should continue to put bins out for collection as usual on scheduled collection days.

‘Ashfield District Council will continue to work with Nottinghamshire County Council and other partners to try and keep disruption to a minimum.
