Greenwich Council have this afternoon announced they’re NOT adopting fortnightly bin collections for recycling a day after stating they would.
The authority announced the measure yesterday and even included it in their weekly rag Greenwich Info. Ironically most copies of that fine publication end up in the recycling bin unread – which was exactly the bins that were to no longer see weekly collection.
But what’s this? Today those announcements from the council were deleted. Something was afoot.
And now this afternoon they’ve announced weekly collection of blue top bins will continue.
Has GLLaB done something useful and found some staff?
Changes next year
Next year’s move to fortnightly collection of black top bins will however continue.
The latest move was unplanned and a result of a lack of HGV drivers.
Changes in 2023 are long-planned and were part of consultation taken way back in 2019, covered on this site in November of that year.
