To further its aim to have only 5% of waste sent to landfill by 2020, the City Council will be changing some of its street cleaning services from the beginning of April. The new services, delivered by SERCO, relate to food waste collection, glass collection, and paper and card recycling. The City Council will also be introducing ‘intelligent cleansing’ services to improve the overall environment of the district’s town and city centres for the benefit of businesses, residents and visitors.
Street cleaning and litter picking will be timed to coincide with periods of highest footfall, such as lunchtime and late evening. Mobile recycling bins, handheld technology to report graffiti and more street monitors on patrol will help keep streets up to scratch. Eye-catching new livery on SERCO waste collection and management vehicles will help promote the new ‘cleaner Canterbury district’ message.
The City Council will also be working with SERCO and KCC to tackle issues affecting highway roadside cleaning (KCC’s responsibility), especially on entrance roads into Canterbury.
