Again, “mop up” crews were sent out on Satur­day (July 13) to pick up the refuse from across the bor­ough that was missed dur­ing the week.

Now, Ash­ford Bor­ough Coun­cil has apol­o­gised to res­i­dents for the delays and thanked them for their pa­tience.

A spokesman said: “Ash­ford Bor­ough Coun­cil is aware that some streets did not have their re­cy­cling col­lected on Mon­day, and crews will re­turn to th­ese ar­eas.

“Crews have also re­turned to properties that re­ported missed refuse col­lec­tions last week.


“This is only the first week of the new re­cy­cling col­lec­tions, and res­i­dents’ re­sponse has been fan­tas­tic.

“We thank ev­ery­one for em­brac­ing the new sys­tem so en­thu­si­as­ti­cally.

“While we ex­pected there to be large amounts of re­cy­cling in this first week, it has taken more time to com­plete the rounds than an­tic­i­pated.

“We are sorry for any delays and in­con­ve­nience caused.

“Crews will be work­ing un­til 8pm each evening, and we thank you for your pa­tience.”
