Kennet Council Waste Collection Arrangements

All refuse and recycling collections will be collected on your usual collection day with no disruption to the service over Bank Holiday periods.

Kennet District Council would like to re-emphasise to all residents that there will be no disruption to the refuse and recycling collection services over the Bank Holiday.

All collections during the week commencing 1st January 2007 will be made ONE DAY LATER than usual.

Clear that - collections will be on the usual day, re-emphasised no disruption, except it is going to be one day later, and you can be fined if you put your bin out the wrong day....(Under Section 46 of the Environmental Protection Act 1990 the Council can state the receptacles and the steps a household waste producer must follow when placing waste out for collection. If waste is then placed out not in compliance with the policy this is an offence under the Environmental Protection Act 1990 and a fine of 100 pounds can be charged.- Kennet)

And remember - "Wheeled bins must be presented kerbside by 7.00am on collection day; lids must be firmly closed with no side waste. Waste presented incorrectly will not be collected."
And they call themselves public servants....


After years of complaining to eastbourne council about why they only put the holiday collection notices in the local not free paper instead of the free, delivered to every door newspaper, they finally posted a notice through all letter boxes. We tend not to get fined as changes in dates here are confusing for most of our residents!!!!!

I remember an newsagent advertisement which read. "Develop your prints with us, 24 prints £2.99 or 24 prints with free film £3.99"

I never could figure that one out.
