We cannot accept garden waste, very large bulky items and electrical or hazardous items. You can dispose of these items through our paid for bulky collection service or at the household waste recycling centre at Burial Ground Lane, Tovil, Maidstone.


It is open Monday to Saturday, 8am to 4.30pm, and Sunday and Bank Holidays, 9am to 4pm. For more information about our bulky rubbish services, including paid for doorstep collections, visit maidstone.gov.uk or call the cleansing hotline on 01622 602162.


Councils join forces to improve waste and recycling services


Residents in Maidstone will have a new, improved waste collection and recycling service later this year.


The improvements will come about as a result of the council joining forces with Ashford and Swale councils for a joint waste and street cleansing contract with Biffa Municipal Ltd.


The new collection system will be rolled out across the borough from August 2013. It will improve the quality of waste collection services and will enable more items to be recycled.


Collection days may change for some households and residents will be informed before any changes are made.


Recyclable waste will continue to be collected on alternate weeks under the new system, but residents will be able to add an increased number of items to their green bin including all types of plastics and glass. The current collection doesn’t take all types of plastic or glass and residents should ensure they don’t add the additional items to the recyclable waste until August.


The new 10 year contract will save Maidstone taxpayers more than £1 million a year and will not affect the frequency of the collections.
