Three Rivers waste collections update

22nd April 2020

Three Rivers Council’s recycling and refuse collections will be getting back to normal over the next couple of weeks, after issues with staff sickness and the need to change working practices led to a temporary reduction of services. 

The resumption of the usual pattern of collections will be as follows: 

Week beginning 27 April – refuse, food waste pods and recycling

Week beginning 4 May – recycling, food waste pods and garden waste. 

From the following week, collections will follow the council’s collection calendar. The situation will be kept under review and any necessary changes advertised on the Council’s website and via social media. 

Cllr Phil Williams, Lead Member for Environmental Services said “Our front-line crews continue to work exceptionally hard at this difficult time. I would like to thank residents for their support and for the positive comments that they have given to our crews. As usual the local community has pulled together and got on with things.” 

Cllr Sara Bedford, Leader of Three Rivers District Council, added: “Three Rivers has a proud record of running some of the best refuse and recycling services in the country. We consistently empty bins in the winter snow and ice, when other areas do not. I am pleased that we are able to resume services and thank residents for their patience over the past few weeks.”
