Information from Rother on waste collections

By Jane de Garston Battle Town Council

In common with many other local authority areas across the UK, waste and recycling collections and street cleansing services in Rother are being affected by high levels of staff absence.

As the local Covid infection rates increase, Track and Trace instructions to isolate combined with a general shortage of HGV drivers means that collection services could soon be suspended for a period until the situation improves.

Several actions are being taken to maintain services, including early morning and late evening work, so residents are being asked to regularly check their local council website, register for information bulletins and look out for communications in local media regarding their local services.

We are asking residents to refrain from using the local bring sites as reduced staffing levels means they will not be emptied frequently; please use your household recycling collection or take recycling to Pebsham or Mountfield Waste Recycling Sites.

Thank you
Rother District Council
