Tonbridge & Malling Borough Council in partnership with Tunbridge Wells Borough Council have awarded an eight-year contract for a new recycling and waste collection and street cleansing service to Urbaser Ltd, a resource and waste management company.
The new contract, which will begin on 1st March 2019 in Tonbridge and Malling and on 30th March 2019 in Tunbridge Wells, will see Urbaser Ltd providing a greatly improved recycling service to 101,000 homes as well as street cleansing services across both boroughs.
Initially services will continue as normal. There are significant logistical arrangements required to introduce the new improved recycling services and our contract specifically provides for a ‘bedding in’ period for a number of months.
Our ‘Frequently Asked Questions’ regarding the service are now on our website https://www.tmbc.gov.uk/services/environment-and-planning/recycling,-rubbish-and-waste/household-waste-information-and-advice/new-improved-recycling-collections-2019 These will be updated as more information becomes available.
