Bin collections on Thursday 10th July

Local government staff are taking industrial action on Thursday 10th July across the country as part of a dispute over pay. The trade union Unison say that the current pay offer would leave council staff nationwide 20% worse off in real terms than they were in 2010. Nearly half a million local government staff have lost their jobs under the Tory-led government.

As a result, there will be no bin collections on Thursday. If you are affected, Rotherham Council is making the following alternative arrangements:
