Latest update from Wealden District Council – Tuesday 14th June at 4pm
We are pleased to announce that our waste contractor, Biffa, has informed us this afternoon it has reached a negotiated settlement with the GMB union and as a result the industrial action has been brought to an end.
Striking staff will be returning to work tomorrow and we will be working with Biffa to reinstate full collection services and recover outstanding waste as quickly as possible.
We would like to thank our all of our residents for their patience and understanding during this difficult time.
Please continue to check the WDC website here for service updates while Biffa works to catch up on collections.
Nusrat Ghani said: "The industrial action has been highly disruptive for Wealden residents and I am pleased that services will be resuming from tomorrow.”
