Scores of streets across Ash­ford missed out on their first re­cy­cling col­lec­tion pick-up this week af­ter the bin­men’s rounds took longer than ex­pected.

Ex­tra “mop up” crews were sent out, as well as the sched­uled lor­ries, to col­lect from house­holds that missed out.

Ash­ford coun­cil bosses say they are con­fi­dent is­sues with the new ser­vice will soon be ironed out.

Coun­cil leader Cllr Gerry Clark­son (Con) said: “By and large it’s rolling out fairly well but it would be fool­ish to think it’s run­ning smoothly.”
