15/07/2022 - An update on bin collections

We are very sorry that we have been experiencing operational difficulties recently due to high numbers of Refuse Driver vacancies. We are doing everything we can to attract recruits to the council, but this could take some time.

We have worked hard over the last couple of years to maintain our services to all our residents and we will continue to do so even if that means asking our crews to work weekends.  

The warm weather we are experiencing at the moment also impacts on our productivity - please bear with us, our staff are out in all weathers but this heat is particularly hard for them. 

We fully appreciate how frustrating this is for people, are sorry for the inconvenience and we want to assure you we are treating this as a priority. 

If you would be interested in working with us, or know anyone who might be please look at our recruitment pages.

In the meantime we are doing are absolute best to stick to the schedule and catch up on collections which have been missed.

Please check your scheduled bin collection date on our website or download the Luton Bins App.
