Full details of this year's Christmas and New Year waste and recycling collections and the work going on to make your streets safer are including in the winter edition of the council's magazine "Thanet Matters".

Now available at local supermarkets, as well as Thanet's Gateway Plus, in a move that will save around £10,000 per year, the magazine also features full details of how your Council Tax was spent in a five page finance supplement.

There are details of which dates you can expect to have your waste and recycling collected during the Christmas and New Year period and we take an in-depth look at the work being done through the Thanet Community Safety Partnership to make your streets safer.

The issue also includes information on how you can have your say on council services, with details of the council's budget consultation and the crime and safety survey, which gives you the chance to say what the issues are in your area that need tackling.

There are also updates on the work of the council's Standards Committee, the Thanet Works programme, how to recycle more and waste less and the work underway at Hartsdown Leisure Centre.

The supermarkets that "Thanet Matters" can be collected from are Tesco Extra at Westwood, Tesco in Broadstairs and Manston, Sainsburys at Westwood, Asda in Broadstairs, Morrissons in Margate, the Co-op Birchington and Waitrose in Ramsgate. Additionally, copies can be found at Thanet's Gateway Plus, local libraries and Visitor Information Centres.
