Herefordshire Council has said that due to staff shortages, there could be some delays to the collection of household waste and recycling in the county this week.

A spokesperson for Herefordshire Council said:

“Collections may be affected over the next few days due to staff shortages.

“Please leave any missed bins out and only report a missed collection after 5pm the day after it was due, as the crew may still be on their way.

“We’re sorry for any inconvenience caused and our crews thank you for your patience.”
