Following enquiries from Liberal Democrat councillors, Torbay Council have provided an update on the recent late recycling collections.
TOR2 have advised the council that, due to unexpected circumstances that have led to a lower number of drivers, there are approximately 3 or 4 collection rounds that are running late this week. TOR2 are expecting to have caught up with collections by Monday 10th June.
Torbay Council are continuing to liaise with TOR2 regarding delays and are monitoring the situation this week.
New recycling collection vehicles have been ordered and the council are hoping to be able to start using the first of the new vehicles within the next month, which will help TOR2 to provide more reliable collections.
