Response from Swale BC on waste collections

By Parish Clerk Upchurch Parish Council

Wednesday, 10 April 2024


Upchurch Parish Council Contributor


UPC has asked Swale Borough Council for an update on behalf of residents regarding the Waste Collection service. Please see response :

Good afternoon

We have had an uncertain start to the contract, however feeling a little more positive this week. Suez have 4 new drivers starting Thursday and 6 crews working over this weekend to catch up with outstanding bins

Please help us to spread the message to all the residents affected by missed collections in your ward, to continue to leave their wheelie bins and/or food waste caddies out for collection.

We apologise for the inconvenience with the delay in collections, we understand how frustrating this has been. We continue to work hard daily with Suez to resolve the issues.

Kind Regards

Leanne Pink
