Anglesey bin strike called off

Bin workers on Anglesey have called off a planned week-long strike.

Biffa staff, who provide waste and recycling services on the island, were set to walkout on Easter Monday in a dispute over pay and conditions.

But the waste management firm, which works under contract for Anglesey Council, has reached a settlement with the Unite union following eleventh hour talks. It’s understood an improved pay deal was accepted.

All waste and recycling collections, including black and green bins, food waste and nappies will continue as usual.

An Anglesey Council spokesperson said: ”We are pleased that negotiations between Biffa and union representatives have reached an agreement and grateful to them for resolving this matter without impact on Anglesey residents.”

”The strike has now been called off and our waste collection and cleansing services will continue as normal next week…Anglesey residents are advised to place their bins and recycling containers out at their normal collection point by 7.00am and they will be collected as normal.”

The two recycling centres at Penhesgyn and Gwalchmai will be open during their normal opening times.
