Coronavirus: Waste Services

Waste collections from households in West Berkshire will continue as normal, unless otherwise notified.

We will continue to work with our collections contractor to ensure that services are provided with minimal disruption. However if we have to change the level of service we provide, for example if a large number of staff are not available, we will prioritise essential services such as rubbish collections.
