Council resumes bulky waste collections

SWANSEA'S bulky waste collection service is back on from today following a review of our city's environment services.

Having been closed down as part of the initial response to the Coronavirus pandemic, demand for the restored service is likely to be high.

Cllr Mark Thomas, Cabinet Member for Environment and Infrastructure, said the move was part of a range of measures that will also see other environment services stepped up in the coming days and weeks.

He said: "Our services are here for the people of Swansea. Throughout the crisis the council has been ensuring it complies with latest Welsh Government guidance on staying safe and helping save lives.

"When it comes to bulky waste collections we will be taking measures that keep both our staff and the public safe. So we urge customers to be patient and comply with the arrangements we'll be putting in place."

Among the changes introduced for the resumed bulky waste collection service is a rule that social distancing between residents and the team collecting the waste must be maintained.

Householders should not book if a member of the household is or has been displaying symptoms of coronavirus within seven days before booking the service or is self-isolating due to close contact with someone suspected of having Covid-19.

Items must be placed at the kerbside the night before or morning of scheduled collection.
