Assaults on refuse collectors
Requested Tue 14 June 2022
Responded Wed 29 June 2022
In the last financial year 2021/22 how many incidents did your authority record where refuse collectors were physically assaulted by members of the public while carrying out council duties? Please give a brief description of the circumstances of the incidents.
NOTE: By refuse collectors I mean all employees whose main duties are involved in the collection of rubbish (all types) from homes and businesses with your authority.
NOTE: If the refuse collection duties are carried out by a third party company hired by the council the information is still held by the council, because it is information held on your behalf.
No physical abuse on refuse collectors was reported for 2021/22.
