Further bin collection strikes in Brighton planned in October

Workers protest outside a depot as part of strike action.

Fresh strikes have been called by refuse collection workers involved in a long-running dispute with Brighton and Hove city council.

Members of the GMB union in Brighton walked out on Monday for two weeks, after they complained of being 'messed around' by their managers over shifts.

The union has now served notice of another two weeks of strikes, which are set to begin on October 21st.

The second round of strikes means rubbish collections in the city will be impacted for much of October.

Talks between the two sides have been held this week, but little progress has been made.

Bins could be seen overflowing in Hangleton, Hove.

Rubbish is now starting to pile up in the streets, as residents struggle to dispose of their waste.

A council spokesperson said: "We apologise to residents for the disruption. Residents can get rid of their household waste and recycling at our Household Waste Recycling Sites, which are open throughout the strike.

"Our advice to residents during this time is wherever possible please flatten boxes, try to minimise waste and rinse and store recycling safely at home."
