Regrettably, we still have a significant number of waste collection staff absent in addition to vacancies. We've been unable to attract and retain agency workers to fulfil these roles which means that unfortunately, the suspension of garden waste collections will need to continue up to and including Friday 20 August 2021. This decision affects all garden waste collections in Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole.
The four week suspension means that you will miss two collections. We are now considering the options for how to make up for these missed collections and we will communicate this to you in due course (our customer service team has no further information to provide at this time so we ask that you please await further communications by email).
During this time, please remember that garden waste can still be taken to our Recycling Centres across the three towns for disposal.
We sincerely apologise for the inconvenience caused and thank you for remaining patient.
