Please note that this will give you the Week 1 and Week 2 cycles of collection only.
A twin bin scheme operates in the Borough and household refuse and recyclables are collected on alternate weeks. Please ensure your bin is put out by 7.00am on the morning of your collection at the front boundary of your property. If you own a Brown Bin, it will be collected on the same day as your Blue Bin.

Real Christmas trees should be taken to your local household waste and recycling centre (Gas Road Sittingbourne, The Stone Yard Sheerness or Salters Lane Faversham) for recycling.
If you subscribe to our garden recycling service, you can place your cut up real tree in your brown wheeled bin and we will collect it. The broken up tree must fit in the brown bin with the lid closed.
Put those broken Christmas lights and any electrical decorations or items in a plastic carrier bag on top of your refuse bin, and we will take them away!
If you are still unsure of when to put your bin out, ask a neighbour or contact our Customer Service Team, to confirm you collection day.
