Paul Bicknell, EBC Cllr for Eastleigh South, writes:
“Unfortunately it is very real that the waste collection team are suffering from having to self isolate due to Covid and a national shortage of hgv and lgv drivers.
This is not unique to Eastleigh as a recent article in the Echo about Southampton Council shows. Other councils nationwide are affected too.
Suffice to say EBC will do everything they can to collect your waste but you may need to be a little more patience than the norm.”
