Suspension of Garden Waste Collection Service

By Rosie Hoile, Parish Clerk Droxford Village Community

Following talks with our waste operator, BIFFA, we can confirm that our garden waste collection service has been suspended from Friday 30 July until Monday 9 August.

In common with many other local authorities, this suspension has become unavoidable due to a lack of staff arising from:

  • A significant number of waste collection staff self-isolating in line with the present guidance to prevent the spread of COVID-19
  • A current national shortage of HGV drivers

Customers will not lose out financially – we will be reviewing the annual contract duration with a view to extending collection for a period in February to reflect the collections lost due to the impacts of COVID-19 and the HGV driver shortage.

For those wishing to dispose of garden waste prior to the service recommencing, the HWRCs remain open for bookings or garden waste can be retained until the service recommences.

All our other waste collection services remain unaffected and will continue to be collected as per the timetable.

We thank customers for their patience, apologise for this unavoidable suspension and look forward to resuming our full service in due course.”
