Garden waste collections will restart in Wokingham Borough today (7 January) after they were temporarily suspended. The service was paused earlier this week due to a high number of Covid-19 cases amongst our waste collection contractor Veolia’s staff.
Collections will go ahead as planned from Thursday (7 January), following the revised Christmas collection schedule. Any residents due to have their collections from Thursday onwards are advised to put out their brown bin or garden waste sacks for collection as normal.
Residents who were missed on Tuesday and Wednesday (5-6 January) are advised to put their bins out for collection on Saturday and then leave them out until Sunday if they are not picked up.
All collections are intended to continue as normal from Monday (11 January). We will continue to provide updates to residents on the impact of Covid-19 on our waste and recycling services; sign up for our email updates from the council.
