The current COVID-19 outbreak has resulted in reduced staffing levels for our contractor. In order to prioritise resources for the core refuse, food waste, recycling and clinical waste collections, some following services are suspended with immediate effect.
As you may be aware, the roll out of the new recycling collection services, whilst in the main is working well, has resulted in some delays in collections taking place. Whilst this is to be expected with such a large scale implementation project and additional resources have been deployed throughout this week, our contractor is going to be working over the weekend in order to progress the completion of this week’s kerbside collections. As such they will be utilising the drivers & vehicles that would normally be used to deliver the Saturday Freighter Service for bulky items of waste that would otherwise be taken to a Household Waste Recycling Centre. As a result, the Saturday Service will not be in operation for Saturday 19 October.

Highway drains help to keep water off the highway and make it safe for drivers and other road users. Kent Highways look after drains, ponds and lagoons, pumping stations and soakaways.
