Hot weather alert

As temperatures soar once again, our household waste crews are going to start their collections earlier than usual for the remainder of this week.

Crews are set to begin their rounds at 5.30am on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday (10-12 August) so they can make the most of the cooler part of the morning. Should you choose to put your bins (including garden waste) out overnight, please secure them in a safe place. We thank residents in advance for your understanding and ask if you can please share this information with neighbours.

The Government has published information for those who may be able to sponsor refugees from the conflict in Ukraine with accommodation. Please see the dedicated page for full details.  District and borough councils across Kent are working with Kent County Council to help.

Please inform Kent County Council when your guests arrive using the arrivals form on the following page Homes for Ukraine - support for hosts - Kent County Council (KCC) will then arrange for the one-off £200 payment voucher as soon as possible.

For further information including local support for both guests and hosts see our Support For Ukraine page.
