Save Ricborough Recycling Site - Meeting 20th April

Richborough HWRS    Your skills and time are needed

KCC Cabinet member, Bryan Sweetland, has confirmed his decision to close Richborough Household Waste and Recycling Site on the Ramsgate Road, with effect from the end of the current contract, August 2013.

We have 16 months to change his mind.

This closure will affect residents in Deal, Margate and Whitfield/Dover with increased numbers of people using their facilities, with increased traffic and queues to and from these sites.

Additionally, it will vastly inconvenience people in and around Sandwich, Ramsgate and Broadstairs as well as the villages from Cliffs End to Ash, from Worth to Eastry, and beyond.

If you could actively help the campaign at any time during the next 16 months, we need to hear from you URGENTLY.  Please write to Richborough Action Group (R.A.G.) at:  73 The Street, Ash, near Sandwich, Kent CT3 2EN or email

We are meeting at the
United Reform Church in Sandwich on 20th April at 7.30 p.m.  Please do attend and let’s ensure , by our words and deeds, that we can persuade KCC to change their decision.
