Waste collection services which were suspended by Allerdale Borough Council last month will resume on September 9.
Garden waste and glass, cans and plastic recycling services were suspended on July 8 to alleviate issues affecting waste collections across the borough, the council said.
The suspension meant the council could ensure that all residents had their household waste collected on their scheduled day.
Paper and card and business waste collections were also unaffected by the temporary arrangements.
Following discussions with FCC Environment, who deliver the service for the council, an interim arrangement has been agreed, allowing all waste collection services to be resumed.
The interim arrangement will ensure extra resources are put into delivering the services.
The council and FCC would like to thank residents for their cooperation and patience throughout this period and apologise for any inconvenience caused
“The council and FCC would like to thank residents for their cooperation and patience throughout this period and apologise for any inconvenience caused,” it said in a statement.
“The council also wants to thank those who used the recycling bring sites and household waste recycling centres (HWRCs) across the borough while the suspension was in place.”
Collections will follow the calendar that was issued to residents ahead of the start of the new waste collection service which came into effect on 1 April 2019.
The new waste collection service (from 1 April 2019) introduced completely new bin collection rounds and new lorries with in-cab technology.
However, when the changes were introduced the bin crews were not able to make it to some properties on the scheduled day. Therefore, the decision was made to suspend some services to help crews complete the rounds whilst solutions were devised by the council and FCC.
The executive agreed on August 6 to move forward with an interim agreement to address the issues experienced, as well as work on longer-term solution, so that residents can receive the standard of waste collection services they expect.
The recycling bring sites will remain open for residents to dispose of waste.
