The knock-on effects of no less that 7 vehicle breakdowns in just one day are delaying council refuse collection this week
Vale of Glamorgan Council officers have told councillors that the breakdowns are “starting to impact on this week’s waste collections” and there could be “some residual affect in isolated areas across the authority for the remainder of the week whilst we continue to catch up”.
It’s hoped that these delays will be “minimised to approximately 3-4 individual rounds” by today (Wednesday). Meanwhile the council says it is “working with” its vehicle workshop and “contacting every available vehicle supplier to obtain a short-term solution”.
The council says “we will continue to work as long as possible each day to try and catch back up”.
