Part C - General Information

Waste Management - Covid-19

The waste management team working in partnership with Biffa have done an excellent job to maintain all waste collection services throughout the district during the Covid-19 pandemic. Both EFDC and Biffa have managed to successfully do this whilst maintaining the safety of staff.  The government and WISH (Waste Industry Safety & Health Forum) issued guidance for waste collectors and the problems relating to social distancing while carrying out these essential services. We have been following the guidelines for key workers and following social distancing where practicable. Below are some examples of the measures that we have introduced to ensure the safety of all staff and ensuring the waste collection services continue to operate fully.

  • Loaders are meeting out on the round where they can and not travelling to the disposal point with the vehicle and driver.
  • Biffa are using a minibus with a maximum of 4 operatives in the vehicle to shuttle them to work locations as necessary.
  • Only driversare expected to collect their vehicles and the keys are left in the vehicle each morning so there is no need to enter any enclosed space at the depot.
  • The use of mobile phones and the vehicle PDA’s to communicate with the depot and supervisors is being used.
  • Gloves and hand sanitizer/wipes as well as uniforms are ordered by this method and the depot places this equipment in the vehicle to limit physical interaction.
  • Instructions have been issued for operatives except the driver not to get into the cab especially in the built up areas of the district as they can walk from bin to vehicle to bin. Rural areas can be a bigger challenge and in this case we are reducing crew sizes to driver and loader which is acceptable under the government key worker instructions.
  • As the collection vehicles do not go out on a Monday, they are deep cleaned and disinfected including the use of a disinfectant bomb” in the cabs.
  • The driver and operative/s are advised to regularly clean their vehicles throughout the day and at the start and end of every shift. Crew members are kept with the same vehicle where this allows and only changed due to sickness or leave.

  • Operation Shield – 12 people receiving Council food parcels direct. Consultation with VAEF to pick up bespoke shopping requirements and deliveries towards end of the month. Minimal new requests coming forward.
    • 19.5% load on ICT connectivity
  • Council main focus now on supporting safe working (including risk assessments) in local businesses and reopening of High Streets.
  • EFDC is working with the town and parish councils to support the high streets across the district.
  • ECC will be changing the signal times at crossings so they are instantaneous
  • Stickers have been produced and will be delivered to the shops on Saturday in preparation. Marks and Spencer in Epping have declined the stickers – they will use their own corporate equivalent.
  • There will be no parking outside Marks and Spencer (Epping) and a 20mph speed limit will be in place in some areas of the high street.
  • Parts of the pavements will be made wider and the railings at the top of Station Road, Epping will be removed without disturbing traffic too much.
