A recovery plan has been agreed with Kier, Wealden District Council’s waste collection contactor, which should see collections return to regular schedules over the next week.
The measures agreed include:
• Additional support vehicles and crews to remain in place until collections are back on track.
• Re-opening of a workshop at the Amberstone depot to support and maintain vehicle reliability during the summer, and maintain this until the end of the contract.
• Provision of a pool of agency staff to improve resilience.
