Crews have maintained regular collections during these unprecedented times.


They’ve collected almost 5,400 tonnes of waste and mixed recycling since mid March, compared with around 4,500 tonnes for the same period last year, (an increase of around 20%).

As well as household waste and recycling collections, Council contractors have also been maintaining garden waste collections and bulky waste collections, as well as other important works, including street cleaning, litter bin emptying, and roadside clearance, supported by dedicated staff at DDC.

Cllr Trevor Bartlett, Leader of Dover District Council said: “Our waste and recycling teams have been doing a fantastic job across the district throughout these difficult times, and it was a real pleasure to be able to thank them for all their amazing work.”
