Coronavirus: Council services update

The Council is working hard to ensure refuse and recycling collections continue as normal but extra measures have been put in place to safeguard staff as they work.

Measures will be introduced over the next week to help staff with social distancing. Additional vehicles are being used to travel behind refuse lorries to reduce the number of staff in the cabs and help staff maintain social distance.

Residents are being asked not to fill refuse bins with garden waste, recycling or items which would previously have been taken to recycling centres, to avoid bins becoming too heavy, so collection crews can empty bins safely.

All rubbish must be in sealed bags and contained in the bin with the lid closed and no additional bags should be left on the pavement.

Householders can also help protect Council staff by taking precautions when disposing of their rubbish.

Executive Member for Streetscene for Fareham Borough Council, Councillor Simon Martin, said: “We are working hard to keep as many essential services running as possible for residents, whilst protecting the health and wellbeing of our staff, during this difficult time.”
