MK Council to suspend food and garden waste collections

With household waste and recycling collections continuing as normal for residents in Waveney, East Suffolk Council and East Suffolk Norse have temporarily suspended the collection of garden waste.

Regular updates on the rubbish and recycling services will be provided on the council's website and social media channels.

The companies, which have to collect, sort and process the waste from twenty-seven million households in the United Kingdom, say it is a "huge daily challenge to ensure bin collections continue but we need your help to do this".

"We are asking all residents not to place garden waste in their general waste bin, or present bagged garden waste as side waste".

Whilst the service is suspended, missed garden waste collections can not be reported. Black bag waste and clear recycling sacks will continue to be collected on your regular collection days.

Whilst these collections are on hold, why not consider home composting as much of your garden waste as possible?

James Mallinder, East Suffolk council's cabinet member for the environment, said: "In these unprecedented times we must get the balance right between delivering essential services and safeguarding the health of our staff and communities".

Additionally, he hopes that people will give some thought to what they purchase and the build-up of household waste.
