Bin collections are currently ‘operating as normal’, despite the coronavirus crisis, Gedling Borough Council have confirmed.
The leader of Gedling Borough Council, Councillor John Clarke said: “We’re currently operating our refuse collections as normal but there has been some disruption to glass box and garden waste collections as a result of staff shortages.
“We strongly advise that households sign up to our bin alerts emails at gedling.gov.uk/reminder and we will update them if there’s any disruption to their collections.
“We’re retraining and redeploying staff from other departments to make sure we continue to provide the service and we’ll be reviewing this on a daily basis.
“I’d like to thank all our residents for their support and understanding and I’d also like to thank our refuse crews and their support teams, they are facing a huge challenge at the moment and they are doing a great job.
“Residents are advised to put their bins out the night before a collection is due as some rounds may be collected earlier than usual.
