Swansea’s bulky waste collection service has returned following a review of the Labour-led council’s environment services.
Having been closed down as part of the initial response to the Coronavirus pandemic, demand for the restored service is likely to be high.
Labour Cllr Mark Thomas, Cabinet Member for Environment and Infrastructure, said the move has been part of a range of measures that will also see other environment services stepped up in the coming days and weeks.
He said: “Our services are here for the people of Swansea. Throughout the crisis the council has been ensuring it complies with latest Welsh Government guidance on staying safe and helping save lives.
“When it comes to bulky waste collections we will be taking measures that keep both our staff and the public safe. So we urge customers to be patient and comply with the arrangements we’ll be putting in place.”
Among the changes introduced for the resumed bulky waste collection service is a rule that social distancing between residents and the team collecting the waste must be maintained.
Householders considering booking a bulky waste collection should not book a collection if a member of the household has displayed or is displaying symptoms of coronavirus.
Items must be placed at the kerbside the night before or morning of scheduled collection.
