Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

Chambers Waste Management still operating

As a country, we are facing extraordinary times as the COVID-19 pandemic really begins to bite.

However, as key workers in a key sector, Chambers Waste Management PLC will continue to operate reduced services to support our customers where we can and will run using the measures outlined below.

If you feel that you need to adjust your bin emptying schedules or suspend your services, then we are offering you the opportunity to do so without penalty.

Please email us at or call us on 01483 504595 and we will do all we can to assist and support you during this very difficult time.

Temporary closure of Chambers Runfold PLC

Sadly, due to the current unprecedented challenges that we are facing, and following Government Guidance, we will be temporarily closing Chambers Runfold PLC on Friday evening 27th March 2020.

This is a decision that has not been easy or rushed but has been made to protect the health and wellbeing of our employees, their families, our suppliers, the general public and our customers.

We trust you understand the reasons behind our decision, and we hope to be of continued service as soon as possible.

Stepping up Protective Measures

With none of us having faced such a situation quite like this before, the virus has already affected many areas of our daily lives and the disruption is likely to last for some time. The Government continues to update their guidance on a regular basis, based on the latest medical and scientific advice.

In light of the Government’s move from the ‘containment’ to the ‘delay’ phase in combatting Covid-19 we have introduced measures on all our sites to help protect our staff and customers. We ask that if you are visiting our sites that you follow the instructions that we give you and work with us to protect all who use our sites.

We are now also asking our drivers to e-sign on behalf of customers in order to limit the potential spread of infection through handling of the electronic tablets and for all staff and customers to keep a two metre (6.5 feet) distance between all persons at all times.

The Government’s current advice is that people should self-isolate if they are experiencing any of the symptoms of the virus. Our business relies on our staff to provide the high levels of customer service usually given to our customers.

To assist us in maximising our workforce we ask that if you or your business are affected by the virus that you let us know as soon as possible so that we can work with you to identify the best way to continue to service your needs. If you need to reschedule any works e.g. a delivery, exchange or collection please give us as much notice as possible so we can continue to work efficiently and effectively.

This unprecedented viral outbreak will test our communities and businesses. We are all in this together and we will continue to work hard to minimise any disruption to your business. We ask for your cooperation during this time and look forward to continuing to provide the best service possible to you, our customers.


Kind regards,
