My folks receive an assisted collection – are these still going to be serviced?

Yes - assisted collections are continuing (at the moment) we will still endeavor to recollect a missed bin in this circumstance, it may not be on the same day as this will be subject to resource availability.

New applications for assisted collections are still being considered but we cannot offer site visits at present and it may take us longer at the moment to process requests.
