Waste service strike

The waste service strike is now over and we have restarted service from 27 September 2023.

Over the next few weeks, our waste service team and private waste contractors will catch up on missed collections and street cleaning as quickly as possible.

We thank everyone for their patience and apologise for the inconvenience

Hazardous substances

The Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) Regulations 2002 were introduced to control exposure to all substances hazardous to health arising from work activities. 

The council usually has responsibility for ensuring that these regulations are adhered to by catering establishments, offices and shops.  The HSE (www.hse.gov.uk) is generally responsible for manufacturing premises.
