Jon Cruddas MP has encouraged local residents to consider joining Barking and Dagenham’s revamped waste collection team. Barking and Dagenham Council are currently in the process of improving the borough’s refuse collection programme and are looking to recruit new members to their waste collection team. Roles available include drivers, loaders, street cleaners, office staff and supervisors.

It was recently announced that cuts to crossing attendants and green waste staff in the borough would be implemented over the coming months. Jon Cruddas MP for Dagenham & Rainham has come out against the cuts and will be contacting Barking and Dagenham Council regarding any future decisions.
