CHARNWOOD WASTE SITES RE-OPENING SCHEDULE - COVID 19

Posted: Sat, 16 May 2020 14:55 by Julie Preston

Please click on attached document for information regarding the re-opening of Charnwood Waste Sites.

LATEST NEWS - GARDEN WASTE SERVICE - COVID-19

The borough council's garden waste service, which has over 30,000 customers, is resuming on Monday April 20. It was suspended due to resourcing issues caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

Working with our waste partner Serco, we are able to start a limited service from Monday April 20 but clearly that leaves little time to contact all customers.

All the information is on the Council website www.charnwood.gov.uk/gwr

Over the next four weeks we will be emptying bins in different areas of the borough.

LATEST NEWS - THURMASTON CEMETERY

Please note that Thurmaston Cemetery is now open, however, visitors must respect social distancing and should not approach Council Staff working in the Cemetery.

LATEST NEWS - COVID-19

TEMPORARY BAN ON BONFIRES UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

In order to protect the safety of members of the public during the Covid-19 pandemic, we have taken the decision to temporarily ban bonfires at allotments.

People with respiratory problems are extremely vulnerable to the effect of smoke inhalation and requiring treatment for this puts them at risk of exposure to Covid-19.

Residents spending more time at home in lockdown may also suffer nuisance from bonfire smoke preventing them spending time in their gardens which is often the only place where they can get exercise, relax or enjoy some fresh air.

We appreciate this will cause inconvenience for plot holders needing to dispose of green waste, but please bear with us and respect the others during this difficult time.

Please do not ignore this instruction

Charnwood Borough Council - Garden Waste Service Suspended


Sent from The garden waste service was suspended on March 23 and while we had hoped it would resume soon, it is now clear that it will not be operating for some time. This is because our waste partner Serco is experiencing staff shortages due to the coronavirus pandemic and they are having to divert staff to ensure the recycling and refuse service is maintained.

Therefore, we would like to inform garden waste service subscribers that we will not be taking any payments to renew subscriptions. This means that any automatic renewal payments which were due to be taken on Wednesday, April 1, 2020 will not be taken. Please do not call us if you usually pay over the phone.

We will not be taking any future payments until the service is ready to resume. When the garden waste service begins to operate again, we will contact those customers whose subscriptions were due to be renewed and encourage them to sign up again.

Refunds
We are offering extended permits instead of refunds. Anyone who is a current subscriber will have their permits extended by the amount of time the service is not running for ie one month or two months etc. We apologise for any inconvenience and will aim to restore the service as soon as possible. We are sure customers understand that we are operating our services during very unusual and unprecedented times. iPhone
