Bin collections across the Canterbury district are happening later this week due to the long Easter weekend.
Households due to have their bins emptied today (Monday) will have them emptied tomorrow and so on through the week.
Those with a Friday collection will see it done on Saturday.
A council spokesman said: “This is to try and overcome the problems we have with bank holiday Monday collections in Whitstable where we struggle to complete the service due to more parked cars in narrow streets and an earlier closure time at the tip.
“This then has a knock-on effect later in the week.”
