Blocked Access

Where access to a road is blocked and the crew cannot safely enter to collect they will make one further attempt within 24 hours to collect. Leaving a 4 hour window between attempts.

If access is still impeded on the second attempt the crew will not return until the next scheduled collection day.

If your household waste bin is not collected because of blocked access, you may present an additional 4 bags of waste on your next waste collection only.

To help prevent this, residents are encouraged to speak to their neighbours and the vehicle owners to explain the situation, they can sometimes be unware of the issues they have caused. Residents can also contact Gloucestershire Highways to ask if parking restrictions could be put in place if the issue continues.
