B&NES Council are advising of possible disruption to waste, recycling and garden waste collections due to Unite industrial action within the Waste and Recycling service starting from Monday, 18th September to Sunday, 24th September. 

This industrial action is in relation to the local government national pay award.

There may also be disruption at our recycling centres in Midland Road, Bath and Midsomer Norton.

The Council said: We are working hard to minimise any disruption so please put your recycling/garden waste or refuse waste out as usual.

For recycling and rubbish collections if we have been unable to collect we will not be able to return later in the week.  Please take your bins/boxes back in and present them again on your next scheduled collection, we will collect additional waste/recycling if placed alongside. 

Please check our waste disruption page next week for any updates, including garden waste collection arrangements and opening hours for our recycling centres. We apologise for any inconvenience.
