Greenwich Council’s leader Dan Thorpe has asked for patience after it emerged 25% of staff in waste services are either in isolation or have tested positive for covid.
Cases have increased hugely in recent weeks across London with the east and south east hit hardest.
Other companies such as those providing rail services have been hit by high levels of staff sickness.
Greenwich refuse workers do a great job year round through all weathers. Let’s hope they are back to full health soon.
