Waste collections update - need help getting message out to residents

----- Original Message -----

An updated press release follows about waste collections in Thanet. We are still out collecting, but we're running into problems, as some people aren't putting their bins out for us to collect. If there's anything you can do to help us get the message across to please put your bins out if you're due for a collection today, we'd be very grateful!


Many thanks, Cheryl





Please put your wheeled bins and black sacks out as usual today (Wednesday 1 December) – that's the message from Thanet District Council.


Waste and recycling collections are continuing across the district today, despite the icy conditions, with crews working to provide a normal service. Residents are being warned that collections may take longer than usual, as crews deal with slippery roads in some parts of Thanet.


However, the biggest problem the teams are finding is that some people are not putting their wheeled bins or black sacks out for collection. Crews are reporting that, on a number of roads that are due to have collections today, nothing has been put out.

Other parts of the council are pitching in to help keep the area moving, with the grounds maintenance team clearing snow and slush away from pavements yesterday (Tuesday 30 November). They will be out again today (Wednesday 1 December), focusing on the busiest areas in Thanet, such as town centres and outside doctors' surgeries.
