Following last Friday’s (18 December) suspension of the refuse and recycling service, a further assessment of the pavements and side-road conditions early this morning (Wednesday, 23 December) has concluded the service will further be suspended.
Decisions are made on a daily basis regarding the continued suspension or resumption of the service with the safety of the public, collection staff and all road users the deciding factors.
All decisions are made with the aid of the latest forecast and weather reports.
Thurrock Council’s website (www.thurrock.gov) will be updated daily. The Christmas collection dates will remain unchanged.
Thurrock Council appreciates there has been inconvenience caused to residents during this difficult period but assures all Thurrock residents of its endeavour to return to full scheduled collections as soon as possible.
There will be ongoing disruption over the Christmas period, please check the website for details.
