The monthly Saturday skip at Waverley street has been closed until further notice.
The official reason is as follows:
Service temporarily suspended.
The Saturday skips collection service has been temporarily suspend with immediate effect, because of concerns about health and safety risks for members of the public and Council employees. The service has been running in the same way and in the same locations for a number of years. The service will be reviewed to make sure it is delivered in the right way and is safe, easy to use and that waste can be separated out for recycling wherever possible.
The Council is looking at how a future service could be delivered and how this fits with the collection services and local household recycling centers available in Worcester. The way the service is provided may change and further details will be provided when agreed.
This is NOT acceptable to the
- Local Council Tax Payers
Local residents have been using this amenity for many years and without it many older people who do not have cars will no longer have the use of this valuable service.
Please post on here or contact Cllr. Lynn Denham if you would like to keep the skip open. Mobile number:

I’ve only just read the protest signs and was wondering what had happened to the skip when I was told by my next door neighbor that on his last trip there he was turned away with no explanation.
Now I know the reason why he was turned away I would like to add my voice to the campaign to save the diglis skip.
I use this skip often and without it I wouldn’t be able to clear a lot of rubbish that will not go in the green or black bin.

It seems that our campaign to save the Waverley Street Saturday Skip Service has been successful, we hope. Subject to the Worcester City Councils application to the Environment Agency for a license.
We will keep you all informed as and when events develop.
