Waste and recycling collections in Thanet will be continuing as normal over the Christmas and New Year period.

The council’s collection crews have agreed to work throughout the Christmas week, including the Bank Holidays, meaning that there will be no changes to the day of your collections.

Cllr. Martin Wise, Cabinet Member for Environmental Services, said: “We’re very grateful to our crews for agreeing to give up their time over Christmas and New Year to ensure that waste and recycling collections can continue as usual during this period. It means you can keep putting out your black sacks or wheeled bins on your usual day of collection, so there’s nothing to remember, except that it’s business as usual.”

If your bin or sack is due for collection:

Friday 24 December (Christmas Eve)
Monday 27 December (Bank Holiday)
Tuesday 28 December (Bank Holiday)
Wednesday 29 December
Thursday 30 December
Friday 31 December (New Year’s Eve)
Monday 3 January (Bank Holiday)

If you are due to have your black wheeled bin, which contains all your non-recyclable waste, collected during the Christmas period, please put this out as normal. Equally, if your blue recycling wheeled bin is due for collection over Christmas, then you should put this out as usual.

There will be no garden waste collections from Monday 27 December to Friday 14 January inclusive, while bulky waste collections will stop from Monday 20 December to Friday 7 January inclusive. There will be no clinical waste collections from Monday 27 December to Friday 31 December inclusive. Paper and card collections will continue as normal and for details of your day of collection, please refer to the council’s website.

If you have any questions about the arrangements over Christmas and New Year, please contact the council on 01843 577115.
