We have been asked to share the following message from South Tyneside Council.
Members of the GMB and Unite unions are involved in a fourth wave of industrial action this week (23-26 January) and there are no bin collections.
However, from next week when crews return to work, residents are being advised to present their grey household bin ONLY every day from Tuesday to Friday (30 January to 2 February).
On non-strike weeks, waste crew operatives are continuing to take action that goes beyond short of strike (“working to rule” and “go slows”). Crews are bringing work back daily, and last week an entire day was missed.
Skips are to be made available from tomorrow, over the next week, for people to drop off any excess bagged household waste: Temporary Waste Drop-off Points Amid Bin Strike – South Tyneside Council
