Thanet District Council revised waste/dog bins
On the 15th March, Thanet District Council began rolling out a revised litter and dog waste bin project. As this information was released after the last Parish Council meeting, it did not have the opportunity to “launch”.
The introduction of larger capacity bins with smart technology (sensors) can provide data on usage and notify the council of the need to empty them.
In the current financial climate the use of larger capacity bins, that will not require liner bags, will help to reduce costs in terms of both consumables and frequency of collection, and enable staffing resource previously used to empty bins to be redeployed elsewhere.
New larger smart-bins are:
- St Nicholas at Wade – Bell Meadow
- Sarre – A28, Canterbury bound next to the bus stop
In addition to the new bins, sensors are being placed into all remaining litter bins in Sarre and St Nicholas at Wade, which will also provide smart data.
You can still report litter bin problems, fly tipping, missed bins etc here
