Recycling waste collections return in Newark and Sherwood

Posted onPosted on 4th Apr

Newark and Sherwood District Council has said normal recycling (silver bin) collections will resume, district wide, on Monday, April 13 (Bank Holiday Monday).

Residents simply need to revert back to their calendar (https://www.newark-sherwooddc.gov.uk/waste/) and place their bins out on the normal day.

The council said: “As the routes have changed, we cannot guarantee that your bin will be emptied at its usual time so please place your bin out by 6am. Please also note that no additional side waste will be collected.

“This service can be resumed now that we have increased the number of drivers, operatives, and vehicles, meaning staff can still maintain social distancing and keep safe.”

Council leader, Coun David Lloyd, said: “I am delighted to announce that we are now able to restore your usual bin collections for both green and silver bins. We have acted quickly by redeploying and training staff and bringing new vehicles into the fleet.

“Our hard-working frontline crews always go above and beyond, reflecting the pride that they have in their work and the very obvious vital service we provide for all residents – my thanks go to them.

“Clearly we apologise for the inconvenience caused by temporarily suspending recycling collections but we had to do this to both ensure the safety of our staff colleagues and to focus on making the changes needed to get going again. I am grateful for residents’ support and understanding this last week and would remind people to please double-bag any tissues or similar items that might carry contamination.”
