Bin lorry drivers in Barking and Dagenham go on strike today for the fourth time this year.
GMB members employed as refuse drivers for Barking & Dagenham Council Environmental Services are taking industrial action over a £1,000 a year pay cut.
London Live's Reya El-Salahi reports.
Barking and Dagenham Council say: “We are saddened by the decision of a number of GMB members to take strike action over enhanced payments for drivers.
“Barking and Dagenham, like councils up and down the country, has had to make tough budget decisions and have had to balance protecting jobs and services while considering the impact of our decision on staff and residents. We consulted with residents and staff and all councillors present at this week's Assembly meeting voted in favour of the budget proposals.
"We would ask them to reconsider their proposed action because of the disruption it will cause residents."
