Refuse collection and Recycling is looked after in our Parish by Mid Sussex District Council.

Every household has two wheeled bins:
One bin will be grey with a blue lid – for recycling
One bin will be grey with a grey lid – for land fill

These bins are collected on alternate weeks: Recycling bin one week and your Refuse bin the next week.

To find out when your bins are scheduled for collection you can enter your postcode here: Bin Collection Dates

There is also a freighter service which visits set areas in the Parish to collect larger items for those that may not be able to gain access to other rubbish disposal methods. The times and dates for this service can be found by clicking
here.

The following information can be found on MSCD website, however we have included the main points below.

Bins need to be available for collection from 7am.

What can you put in your bins?

Recycling bin (blue lid):

Plastic bottles (only bottles - no cartons/ punnets/ yoghurt pots etc)
Paper and cardboard
Food and drink cans
Glass bottles and jars
Cartons
Foil and foil containers

Please ignore the triangular recycling sign on items, although your item maybe recyclable, Mid Sussex can only take the items listed above.

The items often found in recycling bins that cause the most problems that they are not able to recycle are:

Rubbish and food
Other plastic containers (including plastic bags)
Any other glass and crockery

Please put these items in your Grey Lidded Landfill Bin.

If you are unsure what you can recycle please look at the Refuse and Recycling Service Leaflet and flyer or contact the MSDC Refuse and Recycling Team.

All material for recycling should be clean, dry and loose (not in bags)

Landfill bin (grey lid):

Anything else EXCEPT clinical waste, garden waste, electrical goods or large items of household waste.

Chargeable collections of bulky household waste are available from MSDC.

Local Bring Sites and Household Waste Recycling Sites (Civic Amenity Sites) are also available. Please consult Mid Sussex Distrcit Council's website for more information.

Garden Waste

The 1999 EU Landfill Directive requires that the UK reduces the amount of biodegradable waste going to landfill by 75% o 1995 level by 2010 and 35% b 2020. Garden waste is organic and therefore biodegradable and decays in landfill sites to produce methane a potent greenhouse gas which is contributing to climate change. MSDC therefore do not accept garden waste in landfill bins but instead encourage people to compost at home or to subscribe to their Garden Waste collection Service.
