KCC Waste Management Update

The Household Waste Recycling Centre (HWRC) Booking System Consultation
Thank you to everyone who responded to and publicised the public consultation on the future of the booking system for Kent’s HWRCs. The consultation closed on 30 September and 10,705 people gave us their views online, by post, email and voicemail. All the responses have now been analysed and the results will be reported to the Environment and Transport Cabinet Committee on 18 January 2022.

Availability of slots
All 18 HWRCs in Kent have resumed their pre-Covid opening hours and continue to operate 7 days a week at all sites. As usual in December, the HWRCs closed on Christmas and Boxing Day and we had Bank Holiday hours on the 27th and 28th. Both the Deal and Sheerness HWRCs were closed for one day for the installation of new waste compactors (these increase the amount of waste that can be moved in one vehicle which reduces traffic and saves both time, money and carbon emissions).
Overall in December we had 131,152 booking slots available and 50% of these were booked.
