New recycling banks have been installed by Tonbridge and Malling Borough Council.

Five different locations across the district have been fitted with temporary cardboard and paper banks.

The action from the council comes after it announced green bins and boxes will not be collected until July 12, sparking outrage among residents.

These will be in place at; Sainsbury’s (Angel Centre car park) Tonbridge, Longmead (Tonbridge Farm Sports Ground), Asda Kings Hill, Borough Green railway station and Larkfield Leisure Centre.

The council has also reminded those who attend the sites to flatten their cardboard and remove any polystyrene and plastic.

Locals are also being urged not to leave their waste beside the banks.

The council's initial announcement regarding the delayed recycling collection was met with fury from residents.

However, the council insists this was due to a national shortage of HGV drivers.

A similar incident also occurred in Folkestone in early June, however those residents were left in the dark as to when their waste would eventually be collected.
