ABC Refuse bin collection update

ABC CrestAshford Borough Council have, announced that due to the severe weather, bin collections have unfortunately been disrupted this week. Residents are now advised to bring their bins in. The next refuse collections will take place on the week commencing 12 March.

Don’t forget, you can take your waste to the tip, or bag it up and put it next to your grey bin upon your next refuse collection. Food waste can also be placed in your refuse bin if your food caddy is full. Food waste will be collected with your next refuse collection.

Recycling collections will commence as normal from next week (5 March)

ABC apologises for the inconvenience caused and we would like to thank residents for their patience during these unpredictable weather conditions.

    Disgraceful that this information is not readily available on their web site and why do we have to wait until the 12th of March. Yet another inept action by Ashford Borough Council a not fit for purpose organisation

      This notice is posted as a news item on ABC’s website: and has been posted on their social media channels.
      Due to the number of lost days ABC have decided that it would be impractical to catch up with the collection calendar and hence to return the published calendar when collections resume on Monday.
      We are pleased that we are able to keep our residents informed of changes caused by weather conditions.

    I have left my recycling bin out as requested, and the bin men have collected the refuse bins ? It clearly states the refuse will be collected week commencing the 12 march and recycling bins on the week commencing 5th, so neither have been collected

      Apologies, my recycling has been collected 😊
