Local councillors were informed of the following message by Havering Council today (Wednesday 10 August 2022) –

‘Due to the higher temperatures again forecast for the back end of this week, waste and recycling collections will commence an hour earlier, from 6am this Thursday and Friday. This is to allow our crews to work in lower temperatures earlier in the day.

The council have been contacted by fellow Residents’ Association councillors to express concern at the late notice of this decision and the difficulty in communicating the message to those residents likely to be affected.
