Also, surcharges for weekends and/or after-hours collections will be applied as they strive to retrieve containers within their allotted free time.

Our team remains dedicated to reducing disruptions and ensuring optimal operational continuity. We will provide regular updates on any additional developments. Thank you for your continued cooperation.

We acknowledge the potential impact of these disruptions; however, please be advised that SILA will not assume liability for any additional charges arising from these actions.
