RBWM RESIDENTS’ NEWSLETTER

Waste collection update  

RBWM are sorry for the continued issues that some residents are experiencing with their waste and recycling collection services.

Councillor Andrew Johnson, leader of the council, says:

“I am bitterly disappointed by the continued poor level of service that Serco is delivering to our residents for their waste and recycling collections.
On Monday 14 September, only 75% of scheduled waste collection routes were completed which is completely unacceptable.   I fully appreciate this doesn’t help with the immediate issue that some residents are experiencing but we have insisted that Serco deploys significant additional resources this week, at their cost, to get to a position where they have caught up with previous missed collections and they can properly assess their new routes.
This will eventually enable them to make improvements and ultimately reach a position where missed collections are the exception and the majority of collections take place as scheduled, thereby delivering the kind of service we expect and deserve.  
Finally I want to reiterate that, moving forward, if your individual bin has been missed on your scheduled collection day, you need to report it on our website using the ‘report it’ function so that Serco has a record and can add it to their list of missed bins to collect.
Any missed bins from this week will be collected by Serco over the weekend (19/20 September). Please make sure your bin is out by 7am and be aware that collections may happen up until 7pm.”  


If for any reason you don’t receive a collection over the weekend and you are expecting one, please report it via our website: click here.   To ensure you receive the latest waste collection figures, please follow the Royal Borough Twitter and Facebook pages.

RBWM News

Consultation opened for ideas on themed crossings

RBWM want to hear your views about how we celebrate our heritage, diverse communities, our volunteers, charities and unsung heroes.

They plan to celebrate this through a themed pedestrian crossing and want your views about how this should look.

You can make your comments through the consultation – https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/RYK2Z9P – which runs until 12 September.

Councillor Clark, lead member for highways and infrastructure, says: “Many councils have installed pride crossings or painted thank you signs on their roads during the coronavirus pandemic. I want to find out what you want and how we can celebrate the uniqueness of the Royal Borough.

“The consultation runs until 12 September and I would encourage you to have your say.”

The results will be reviewed and collated and proposals will be considered before any work starts. It is likely any work will take place next year.
