Our crews collect from 8,000 homes every day.
General waste and recycling has increased by 17 per cent
In some weeks crews collected more cardboard than at Christmas – normally our busiest time.
Crews have collected 400 tonnes more glass for recycling.
We have now re-opened our three household waste recycling centres at Weston-super-Mare, Portishead and Backwell.
Our contractor Biffa are continuing to perform well with kerbside collections during the COVID-19 crisis and their efforts are being widely acknowledged by residents, which is great to see.
Increased volumes of recycling are being put out and residents are being urged to help crews by correctly sorting boxes. We’re also asking residents to park sensibly to allow the crews to access kerbside waste.
