Petition calls on council to bring back weekly bin collections after COVID-19 crisis

Windsor and Maidenhead’s council has apologised after a number of residents saw their bins left uncollected on Monday.

The Royal Borough cited ‘temporary staffing issues’ for the missed garden waste collections in the two towns, which also affected Littlewick Green and Hurley.

Residents whose collections have been missed been urged to keep their bins out for the time being, with the council adding they will be collected ‘as soon as possible this week’.

In a tweet, the council said: “We apologise for the inconvenience and will collect these bins as soon as possible this week.

“Please continue to present your garden waste bins at the edge of your properties and they will be emptied.”
