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 clickinghere.
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
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.
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.
