Kent's local authorities working together.

Welcome to the website of the Kent Resource Partnership (KRP). We bring together Kent’s 12 district councils, which are responsible for collecting household waste from your home, and Kent County Council, that disposes of it, once it has been collected.

Our mission is to let you know what happens to your waste, to offer ways we can all help to improve how you deal with your waste and to enhance waste management in the county.
