When the council closed down much of its services on 18 March, one of the victims was Too Big For The Bin, the paid-for rubbish collection of items to big or bulky for the regular bin. Well, now it’s back and collections can be booked online. The recycling centres at Smugglers Way and Cringle Street have also reopened, but only for delivery of garden waste and general black bagged waste.
Kensington’s libraries may be closed because of Covid-19, but the online services available for those with a library card are still available, offering books, newspapers, magazines and music. And the Metropolitan Police have useful digital booklets about internet scams, while the NHS offers advice about how to stay sane when scared of viruses and being isolated. Your PC or mobile phone gives you access to it all!
