NAWDO press statement – staff shortages
Wednesday 5th January 2022

In line with many other sectors local authority waste collection and treatment services have been impacted by the increased number of COVID infections and the subsequent requirements for self-isolation.
This challenge comes hot on the heels of the recent HGV driver shortages that the UK has experienced in the last few months and has impacted different parts of the country to different extents over the festive period and looks set to continue to do so into the early part of 2022.

NAWDO is continuing to support its waste disposal authority members through the current period, working with other waste local authority networks and central government to ensure priority services remain operational.
