News : 25 May 2018

An action plan has been agreed with Wealden’s waste collection contractor Kier to end recent failings in service. It will come into force over the coming week

Extra resources will be deployed to support garden waste collections with an additional vehicle and crew, and a late crew will operate in the afternoons to help with catch-ups on all collections.  Measures are also being brought in to improve resilience on staffing levels and increase efficiency when tipping garden waste.

At the Overview and Scrutiny Committee meeting on Monday 22 May, Wealden Cabinet member for Waste Management, Cllr Roy Galley, said strong action was being taken and a number of possible steps were being considered.

We ask residents to continue to report any missed collections online through My Wealden https://my.wealden.gov.uk/ 

We hope that these measures will have a positive impact and enable us to return to normal scheduled collections as soon as possible.
