There are 912 litter and dog bins in the coastal towns and along the seafront.
Litter bins are emptied up to nine times a day, throughout the day over the summer period. Canenco staff are on duty between 4.30am and 8.30pm. You can report a problem with a litter bin.
In 2019, we installed 27 110-litre Glasdon Jubilee bins at Tankerton to replace the existing 22 65-litre Sherwood bins.
We replaced all the Herne Bay High Street litter bins due to poor condition. We installed a few extra bins close to car parks, and new bins at the Harbour.
In early 2022, we installed eight new litter bins on Herne Bay Pier to replace the six which were there. Also in 2022, extra 1.1-litre bins were installed in the following locations:
- Keam's Yard
- Hampton Pier
- St Anne's
They were clearly labelled and were emptied Monday, Wednesday and Thursday, and twice on Saturday and Sunday depending on demand.
We also provided extra tipping capacity with a mobile compactor in one of the Herne Bay car parks. This reduced the amount of time crews travelled to and from the tip at Hersden, cutting two to four trips a day, and meant the crews could focus on emptying the litter bins and keeping the area tidy.
In 2023, the same arrangements have been in place since just before the Easter holidays.
