Update on GMB Union strike - Monday 17 January 2022

Due to ongoing GMB Union strikes in Eastbourne, waste services are being severely disrupted over the next two weeks. We have suspended recycling collections.

Please continue to put your refuse bin out on your scheduled day. If our crews are able to pass through the GMB Union blockade we will empty your bins. If the blockade remains in place and we do not empty your bin, please take them back in again.

During this time we are unable to accept reports of missed bin collections in Eastbourne.

We apologise for the disruption the GMB Union strikes are causing residents.

Following a meeting with GMB Union representatives on Monday 17 January, the union is now considering our latest offer.
