Rother District Council (RDC) is warning residents that collection services may soon be suspended due to high levels of staff absence.
In common with many local authorities across the UK, staffing levels are being affected by increasing Covid infection rates and subsequent Test and Trace instructions to isolate. Adding fuel to this fire is the general shortage of HGV drivers.
RDC is implementing various measures in attempts to maintain services, including early morning and late evening shifts. Residents are asked to regularly check their local council website and register for information bulletins. Recycling items should be taken to Pebsham or Mountfield recycling sites.
