Waste and recycling collector (Environmental Services Operative)

 

"Being a bin man is hard work but I really enjoy being outside and I'm proud of the work I provide to the residents of Uttlesford. We're a real team when we're out on the road and most of the people we meet are pleased to see us." Garry W.  

 

This role involves collecting recycling and waste from households and businesses across the district. The majority of bins we collect are wheeled but you could be collecting other bagged waste, bulky items, such as sofas, or skip collections. You'll be trained in using any equipment and we'll also show you how to identify any problems - for example where someone has put the wrong things in their recycling bin.

 

It's a physical role which requires some strenuous activity. a willingness to work in different weather conditions and the ability to walk for long distances on a daily basis.
