Bin men in Sheffield have gone on strike in a dispute over pay.
GMB Union members at Veolia Sheffield have gone on strike for one day, claiming the company has refused to settle a pay claim.
Workers are preventing lorries from leaving the Lumley Street depot, close to the waste incinerator near Park Hill.
Lee Parkinson, GMB organiser for Sheffield, said more than 100 people had already attended today.
He said: "The mood here is absolutely solid, well over 100 people have attended already attended.
"We are hoping that Veolia will agree to sit back at the table again this week, otherwise there is definitely potential for more strike action."
The union claims workers have been drafted in from other parts of the country to cope with the strike.
Lee said this has 'added fuel to the fire'.
A spokesman for Veolia, which runs Sheffield Council's waste collection service, apologised for any disruption in a statement on Friday and assured residents that they were 'working hard' to minimise the impact.
They said: "Veolia will be making every attempt to collect all recycling waste as normal."
The company has not said anything new this morning, but will be issuing a statement later today.
