Four bin men have resigned over the introduction of a bi-weekly, wheelie bin recycling scheme in Oxfordshire.
Bin men in Henley said it was creating extra work as they now had to wheel bins out, unload them and return them. Previously they only collected bags.
Waste contractor Verdant said it hired 70 staff for the scheme introduced in Henley on 8 June and the resignations would not affect its services.
Verdant and South Oxfordshire District Council said it was investigating.
South Oxfordshire District Council said there had been teething problems with the scheme but residents in Hamilton Avenue, Henley, would have their communal rubbish cleared away soon.
The council said it had received thousands of calls to the waste hot line last week.
