STRIKE action planned by an Anglesey council's waste and recycling contractor has been called off.

Staff working for Biffa, the Isle of Anglesey County Council’s waste and recycling contractor, had planned industrial action between Monday, April 22 and Sunday, April 28.

The strike action has now been called off following a pay agreement being reached between Biffa and its employees.

An Isle of Anglesey County 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 7am and they will be collected as normal.”

Residents are asked to note that Penhesgyn and Gwalchmai Household Waste Recycling Centres will be open at their normal opening times.
