"I'd like to say a big thank you to all the staff involved in getting our household waste recycling centres up and running again.
"Demand for this service has been extremely high and it's been a huge task from making sure adequate social distancing measures are in place at all 9 of our sites to managing the volume of traffic along with the expectations of our residents.
"It's been a real team effort with colleagues from across economy, transport and environment and beyond working together to make sure everything runs as smoothly as possible in challenging circumstances. I've no doubt that their flexible and agile approach together with the support they have shown each other has made a real difference in allowing us to provide a valued service for our residents in difficult circumstances. Well done everyone."
