A quick update on the bins situation.
Following the strike action last Thursday, all depots prioritised collecting black bag waste and on emptying litter bins in the busiest spots.
Our depot at Redfern Road was particularly badly hit by a lack of drivers and they have been playing catch up ever since. Bear in mind that as a city, we make 200,000 collections each day across the city and across all types of waste. The Lifford Lane depot have sent crews over to assist, but Redfern still has a couple of black bag rounds outstanding and a good deal of recycling and green waste collections.
They are making every effort to catch up on outstanding work
