As you should know if you are a garden waste subscriber, our winter collection plan is in operation and we are collecting in Woking this week and next.
We started yesterday and we are collecting much more than we were expecting. We were expecting a big uplift in the tonnage, but today it was around 60 tonnes which required additional trips to the processing site. The crews are doing a great job trying to keep up.
The net result was a few roads were not completed, and they will be first on the list for tomorrow. I expect this pattern to continue during the week and I’m currently working with Joint Waste Solutions and Amey to have a Saturday collection in operation to mop up anything missed this week.
Please bear with us and if your green bin isn’t collected when you were expecting it to be, please leave it out as the plan is that it will be collected the next day.
This will be the last collection for this year, and I will be writing to all subscribers in January when I know exactly when the next collection will occur.
We still have a high degree of confidence that the service will be back to normal mid to late spring next year.
