Council issues statement on non-collection of bins

Wirral Council has issued a further statement regarding the ongoing non-collection of Wirral resident’s bins by their contractor, Biffa.

Wirral Council’s statement in full:

“There are ongoing issues between Biffa and their waste collection crews in Wirral which the company is committed to addressing as soon as possible.

“In the meantime, crews are continuing to work to the agreed schedule, however, residents should be aware that in some circumstances, their collection may not take place at the same time as usual and could be delayed until the next day.

“To minimise disruption, residents are urged to put their bins correctly at the kerbside – with the bin wheels facing the road, the lid down and no side waste, as well as parking considerately to make sure that vehicles can access their road.

“If your bin is not collected on the scheduled day, please report it using the form on the council website – – and put it out for collection again the next day.

The problems are not affecting the ERIC bulky collections, which are operating as scheduled.”
