FOI 8927

Assaults of Refuse Workers

Request

1. In the last financial year 2013/14 how many incidents did your authority record where refuse collectors were assaulted by members of the public while carrying out council duties? Please give a brief description of the circumstances of the incident.

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.

Response

I can confirm that the Council have no recorded incidents of Refuse Collectors being assaulted by members of the public whilst carrying out council duties in the period 2013/14.
