Residents wanting to sign up for the garden waste collection service will be able to do so from Monday.

Sheffield Council said: “The impact of the coronavirus on staffing levels resulted in the garden waste collection service being suspended for two weeks.

“Arrangements to rectify any missed garden waste collections from those residents that have already paid for collections will be confirmed once the full impact of the coronavirus on the service is determined.

“Residents are thanked for their patience and understanding during these unprecedented times.

“There are no changes to black, blue or brown bin collections at the moment. In the event of staff capacity issues black bin and clinical waste collections will be prioritised.

“People are reminded that Household Waste Recycling Centres remain open to Sheffield residents only and that you should only visit a HWRC site if waste disposal is essential and unavoidable.

“Sites will be open between 10am-4pm and we ask visitors to be patient so that everyone can adhere to social distancing guidelines.”
