Well that didn’t go as planned…
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.”
