Station Lane litter bin replaced at last!

The MBC royal blue metal litter bin on the corner of Station Lane and Eyhorne Street which was damaged in mid October 2017 has now been replaced with one of a different design.

The issue was raised at the March Hollingbourne Parish Council meeting with MBC Borough Councillor Patrik Garten and the new one appeared a few days later. The bin is close to the site of the former recycling centre in Station Lane which was shut by Maidstone Borough Council in order to save money despite strong objections from Hollingbourne Parish Council. Unfortunately the closure of the site has resulted in fly-tipping in the area.

Pictured below is the new bin shortly after installation last week during the third bout of snow this winter.
