Garden waste suspended

We have reluctantly taken the decision to suspend the garden waste collections for this week because we do not have the operatives or drivers to carry them out without impacting on household waste and recycling collections.

Rounds had initially been postponed, as we hoped to be able to recover the situation, but now we are at the point where we need to suspend them.

We have taken the decision as early as possible so garden waste subscribers know they should not put their brown bins out, and we will return for them in two weeks.

Any garden waste bins that are missed this week will have their subscriptions extended accordingly.

At present, next week’s brown bin collections are due to take place as planned unless advised otherwise, but we will of course continue to monitor the situation.

Our available resources will now focus on continuing the refuse and recycling collections, and making sure that these services are delivered and any missed bins from the past week are collected.

Garden waste can still be taken to the household waste recycling centres by booking a slot on the Kent County Council website or by calling 03000 41 73 73.

We apologise to the garden waste subscribers for the inconvenience.
