Inverclyde Now Logo COUNCIL Confirm Blue Bin Collections to Resume

2 June, 2020 | Local

‘BLUE’ recycling bin collections will start again across Inverclyde in two weeks’ time.

The service will resume on Monday 15 June after the council struck a deal with its existing contractor to allow another company to take over for three months.

Fortnightly kerbside blue bin collections were suspended on 30 March, mainly because of staff shortages during the coronavirus pandemic.

The council does not have the means to store and process dry recyclables so that element of the service is outsourced.

While local authority staffing levels have since returned to a level that will allow household uplifts to resume, the current contractor is still experiencing problems meaning the waste cannot be collected and sorted.

Council officials have now reached an agreement that will allow another company to provide the service until September.
