Strike delays rubbish collection

A strike by waste operators employed by the Central Coast Council's current waste services contractor, Remondis, has resulted in domestic bins going uncollected in some areas of the Peninsula since Friday, June 3.

The workers decided to strike from Thursday, June 2 following failed attempts to encourage Central Coast Council to include clauses in its next waste tender documents to protect the jobs and conditions of the existing contractor's employees.

The operators voted to return to work on June 7 but there were expected to be delays in collections for the remainder of the week as they caught up from the industrial action.

"The drivers are already back on the job and have started with bin collections from last Thursday (when the strike began) and will work to catch up what has been missed since then," said Central Coast Council administrator, Mr Ian Reynolds.

Mr Reynolds said the end of industrial action would come as a relief to residents.

"I am pleased for residents this strike is finally over and they now have surety their bin will be picked up," Mr Reynolds said.

"Council's role here has always been to ensure we have a reliable and efficient waste and recycling service for our 331,000 residents and that will not change.

"My door is always open to those willing to deliver that for our community."

Residents should leave their bin out on the kerb until it is collected by Remondis drivers.

Council opened the Woy Woy tip for residents wishing to dispose of their red lid bin waste sooner for free until Friday, June 10.
