Garden waste collections in SLOTXO Barnsley are to be suspended due to an
increasing number of staff being forced to self-isolate.

 

Barnsley Council say green bin collections will be suspended from 27 July
until further notice.

 

A spokesperson said: "This pandemic is far from over, and we're in
a situation where staff absences are the highest since the start of
the pandemic. Our staff must follow Government rules and self-isolate
to protect themselves, their families and our residents.

 

"We're not alone in this position. Many businesses, public services and our
neighbouring councils are all dealing with the impact of having a reduced
workforce alongside difficulties in getting support from agency workers
due to a national shortage of HGV drivers.

 

"We know that this isn't ideal and will re-start the green bin collections
as soon as possible. We ask for your patience and understanding,
and we'll keep you updated."
