With many wheelie bins in Birkdale due to be collected tomorrow I have received the following press release from the council:
Due to national public sector strike action planned for Wednesday, November 30, 2011, waste collection services across Sefton will be affected.
The weekly green box and food waste recycling collection services will continue to operate in all areas as normal on Wednesday, November 30 and for the rest of the week.
All households that are due to have their grey or green wheelie bin emptied on Wednesday, November 30, will not receive a collection on that day.
Residents scheduled for a grey wheelie bin collection on November 30 are being asked to place their bin out for collection by 6.30am the following day (Thursday, December 1) and leave it out until collected - this maybe on Friday, December 2. These details also apply to residents on the clear refuse sack collection.
For residents who have a grey wheelie bin collection on Thursday and Friday, December 1 and 2, these will operate as normal.
Due to the strike action, no green wheelie bin collections for garden waste will take place between November 30 and December 2. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
The wheelie bin collection service will operate as normal from Tuesday, December 6 onwards, and residents are asked to refer to their collection calendar for details.
For more information about this service and to check the pattern of collections during the Christmas/New Year holiday period please visit www.sefton.gov.uk or call 0845 140 0845.
