Through their efforts, ESA members have been able to maintain good service levels in the face of unprecedented challenges. 

As the minister acknowledges, some operators and SMEs have already had to make difficult decisions about operations and staffing, so it is imperative that Government provides them with access to the financial support they need to see them through this crisis too.

The ESA will continue to work closely with Defra and other government departments to ensure waste services keep moving effectively until this disease is overcome.”
