We wanted to let you know as soon as possible that we've decided not to reinstate the kerbside glass collection service just yet - but that this will be the last time that it's suspended.
We initially took the decision to suspend it for a month because we wanted to prioritise collecting your waste, recycling and garden waste during the ongoing national driver shortage. But despite a recruitment campaign for drivers and loaders, Norse SE needs more time to get its teams up to full capacity.
To help Norse SE further we have today instructed them to increase driver pay once again (the second time in just over a month) - so it will be £16 an hour and loader pay will now be £12.50 an hour - which shows that we are pulling out all the stops to ensure this service gets back on track as soon as possible.
We are really sorry for the inconvenience this is causing and thank you so much for your ongoing patience - we really are doing everything we possibly can to help Norse SE recruit.
If you know anyone who would be interested in one of the jobs then please share this link -
The County Council is keen to hear from as many residents, businesses and other stakeholders as possible, to find out their views on the implementation of 20mph limits in the context of other highways priorities and the County Council's statutory duties to maintain the highway in a safe condition within a limited budget.
The findings from the survey, together with data about use of the highway, speed enforcement, road safety and environmental impacts will be important in helping to shape future policy relating to 20mph speed limits in Hampshire and, in turn, future decision-making around 20mph speed limits. The survey is available here and should take just 15 minutes to complete.
It is open until midnight on Monday 12 September 2022.
