Bin collections  - industrial action

Date posted: 03 November 2022

Industrial action affecting waste and recycling collections starts today

Following notification from our waste contractor, Biffa, we can confirm that industrial action affecting some waste and recycling services in Waverley starts today (3 November).

The strike action was voted for by GMB Union members in a ballot related to pay negotiations that have been taking place between Biffa and the GMB.

Please put all bins out according to your regular schedule and if the bin is not emptied, please leave it out as our waste contractor will be attempting recovery of unattended streets in afternoons and through the weekend.  Please note that during any period of industrial action, the council will close its reporting facility for missed bins. 

Further information, including how to deal with your waste during the industrial action,  can be found on our website at

We encourage residents to continue checking our website and social media channels for further updates. Please also share the information with any neighbours who are not online.

We apologise for any inconvenience during this industrial action and thank residents for their patience.
