Illegal protest delays bin collections – Coventry City Council


Following a protest that illegally blocked the entrance to the Tom White Waste depot this morning all of our collection rounds are running late today.

We apologise for the inconvenience caused by the actions of this small group of people acting outside of the law.

If your bin is not collected please leave it out and we will return as soon as possible.

The Council is now immediately considering all of its legal and enforcement options – as this is unacceptable and intolerable behaviour. These actions are totally contrary to the legitimacy of local democratic process that we have seen exercised in the city in the last 24 hours.
