East Herts Council admits driver shortage delaying bin collections in Bishop's Stortford area




Some bin collections in the Bishop's Stortford area are being delayed by a day or two due to a shortage of drivers, which has hit local authorities and businesses nationally.

A spokeswoman for East Herts Council said that while the drivers shortage had not resulted in a reduced service, with crews "catching up throughout the week", some bins may be emptied a day or two after their scheduled collection.

"Our advice to residents is to leave their bin at their boundary if it isn’t collected on their collection day and crews will attend as soon as possible," she said.

"If they believe that their bin has been missed and the rest of their road collected then they should report this on our website in the usual way as a missed bin."

She added that routes were subject to change for many reasons, and advised residents to make sure their bin was available from 7am on their collection day.
