Waste and Recycling Message from Tunbridge Wells Borough Council


Waste and recycling collection update 5pm on Wednesday 28 February


As you will be aware the weather is conspiring against our waste and recycling collections so we have made a decision that no further collections will take place this week.


We are very sorry but we have taken the decision on the basis that it is impossible to complete rounds because of access and safety issues.


When will my bin be collected?


If your green bin wasn’t collected this week and it should have been, we’ll collect it next week on your usual day instead of your brown bin. So, next week, from Tuesday 6 March, put your green bin out, together with your recycling boxes and we’ll collect on your normal day.


From Monday 12 March, we will be back to usual and you’ll get your green bin done again.


If this week was your brown bin and recycling boxes week we won’t do a catch up collection, so your brown bin and recycling boxes will be collected when they are next due. Extra recycling can be put with your boxes for collection.


My bin was collected this week, what do I do?


If you had your usual collection on Monday 26 February you’ll have your usual collection on Monday 5 March and nothing changes for you.
