Waste Operatives Under Attack - Research Reveals

The Environmental Services Association (ESA), the voice of the UK’s waste and resource management industry, is calling for a zero tolerance approach to the growing problem of unprovoked assaults on waste operatives.

ESA’s Director General, Barry Dennis, said, “ESA’s research indicates that around 110 violent assaults against ESA members’ staff occur every year."


The issue was highlighted on BBC One's 'The One Show' on 14th November.
