People living in Doncaster are being warned bin collections could be disrupted over Christmas - after it emerged refuse workers are to be balloted for strike action.
Staff working for contractor Suez on behalf of the council oppose plans to cut more than 100 jobs next year. Suez says less staff will be needed for its new way of working but no decisions have yet been made, while the council's talking to all parties.
The job cuts will come into effect before the company's new refuse contract agreed by Doncaster council, comes into effect in March 2018.
Strikes on the refuse contract were called off in August after Suez made an improved pay offer to the workforce and agreed to talks at the conciliation service Acas, over the proposed redundancies.
