The Liberal Democrats are demanding the Conservative-run city council takes action over persistent poor performance by waste collection contractors Amey in Gloucester.

Among the recent problems are:

⋅ Around 2,000 tonnes of recycled waste collected from outside residents' homes has disappeared with a market value of £246,000.

⋅ A whistleblower has alleged that some of the recycled waste has been sent to landfill.

⋅ Amey failed to have an adequate contingency plan in place when the snow hit Gloucester last winter leading to a string of cancelled collections over the Christmas and New Year break.
