Waste service strike

A number of Tower Hamlets Council frontline waste service workers and street cleansers will be going on strike from 18 September to 1 October due to a national pay dispute.  

Despite the council working to maintain services for residents, the strike will impact collections and cleansing across the borough. We apologise in advance for the disruption this will cause.

Health and safety

The council provides a health and safety service which carries out regular checks on offices, shops, warehouses and leisure centres. We also have a food safety team which is responsible for the inspection of food retailers and providers in the borough.
