Sandwich Road Disruptions due to abnormal loads – NEMO transformers @ Sandwich Road, Cliffsend
May 25 @ 5:30 am – 6:45 am

On each of the 3 days an abnormal load (large transformer) will come along the Sandwich Road en route from Ramsgate Port to the Richborough Power station.

There will be traffic management & delays as the load comes through the traffic calmed section of road, but no police presence is needed.

Note that these transformers are smaller than the massive interconnector transformers, the last of which is due to be transported to the power station on 16th June 2018. That will require a road closure & police escort.

Recycling collection
May 25 @ 7:00 am

Blue-topped bin + Red bag + Food Waste.

NO CARRIER BAGS in the blue-lidded bin – your recycling will not be collected if you have put plastic carrier bags in the bin.
Please empty the recycling from the carrier bag into the blue-lidded bin & dispose of the carrier bag in with the non-recyclable waste.

Thanet District Council have confirmed that shredded paper can go into the red bag (for recycling paper & cardboard).
However, please ensure that it cannot blow about by enclosing it inside another paper or cardboard container before adding to the red bag.
e.g. inside an envelope / cereal box / large paper sack.

 

To obtain a new red bag you must now phone 01843 577115 to request one and it will be delivered to your property. New bags are no longer available from Minster Library.
