When is my rubbish collected on bank holidays and at Christmas?

Christmas 2015

Any alterations are advertised in the local paper during December each year.

This year we will only be collecting black sacks/bins during weeks beginning 21 & 27 December.  Residents whose collection rotation should be recycling on these two weeks can put out their black sacks/black bins for collection.

•If you are expecting a collection on Christmas Day you will have a collection on Saturday 19 December.

•If you are expecting a collection on New year’s Day you will have a collection on Saturday 2 January.

•This means you will need to save blue lidded bin/box and red paper and card bag until the week commencing 4th Jan, when usual service will resume.

•Food waste will be collected every week.

•Don’t forget during the festive period that KCC’s Household Waste and Recycling Centres are available to use. Please see www.kent.gov.uk for more details.

Garden waste

Garden waste collections will stop for the Christmas break from Monday 21st December until Sunday 17th January (Inclusive).

Clinical waste

Residents who are scheduled to have their clinical waste collected on Friday 25th December or Friday 1st January will be sent a letter detailing their Christmas collection arrangements. All other clinical waste customers will have their scheduled collection as usual.

Bank Holidays

For the purposes of refuse collection - Bank Holidays are regarded as normal working days, so your refuse collection service is not affected. The exception being Christmas and New Year when changes to the collection arrangements will be advertised on our homepage, Council Offices and in the local newspapers.

Inclement weather

If poor weather conditions prevent your waste and recycling from being collected, please store waste until the next collection. For those on wheeled bin collections please refer to the calendar and present the correct wheeled bin on collection day. Any side waste accrued in this time will be collected in this circumstance but for one collection only.
