messageImpact of Covid-19 measures on Southwark Bin Collections and Waste Facility

Just posted up on the Southwark website:

Southwark
We are working closely with our partner, Veolia to minimise the impact of Covid-19 on household waste and recycling collections. Currently, our collection services are operating with some delays, and you may see your waste collected on a later day than normal. Please bear with us, we are prioritising the collection of household waste, and will reach you as quickly as possible if your collection is delayed.

The Household Waste Recycling & Reuse Centre is closed until further notice. This is because any travel to the Centre by residents would be unlawful, following the introduction of recent travel restrictions which require residents to stay at home to prevent the spread of coronavirus. We will update this webpage when this changes.

The non-recyclable (green bin) waste was collected as normal on Underhill (south of Langton Rise) this morning.

I've just asked James McAsh to ensure bins aren't left in the street after they are emptied as this will stop people leaving their houses to move them back in

A small thing but important after last nights announcement

I can't really see the difference between going into your garden and going into the street. Just make sure there is no one around

I agree as the refuse men are already risking germs as it is. The least we can do is bring our own bins in.

Agreed, mine was collected a few hours later than normal but on the correct day - also Underhill/Melford. Bins both left on edge of roadside, which I'm also fine with. The lack of traffic must help them a bit with rounds I would have thought.

We can go out to the pavement to bring a bin in without endangering anyone. Good grief.

I think that these guys are handling hundreds of bins on their route so it's almost certain some will have the virus passed onto it by the house holder and consequently passed down the chain by the bin man. You should avoid touching the surface of the bins and that's why it is better for the bins to be returned to original position. No one is going to leave their bin on pavement for a few days, whereas they are more likely not to fill bins for a few days (allowing enough time for virus to clear which I understand may up to few days). Either way always wash hands immediately after handling bins.

Agree.
