Rubbish will be collected.

COVENTRY Council will have extra refuse crews out tomorrow to clear the backlog created by last week's unofficial strike.

The regular crews will empty the wheelie bins as normal with back-up crews picking up any additional bags left out.

If the additional rubbish is not taken away tomorrow, householders should leave the bags out for collection on Thursday morning.

Cllr Jack Harrison(Lab, Lower Stoke), cabinet member for city services, said: "I am sorry for any inconvenience caused by our failure to collect the refuse last Wednesday. We are making extra resources available to collect as much refuse as possible."

Refuse collectors launched a wildcat strike last Wednesday after a manager made remarks in connection with new work schedules.
