FCC Environment (South Hams recycling and waste contractor) has asked South Hams District Council to suspend all garden waste collections from today (Monday 16 August). The Council has reluctantly agreed to this to enable FCC Environment to focus on general waste and recycling. Many other councils around the country have had to do the same in recent weeks as the national shortage of LGV and HGV drivers continues. Although they would like to be able to collect all waste, including garden waste, FCC Environment know that they must focus all of their resources on the statutory waste and recycling collections. This includes food waste, which can become very unpleasant if not collected in warmer weather. It is anticipated that garden waste collections will be suspended for a minimum of four weeks. South Hams and FCC Environment will continue to review this as the national driver shortage position develops.
