Early start for rubbish and recycling collections

Published: 11 July 2022

Message from Mid Sussex District Council regarding the waste collections the week commencing 11.7.22

In light of the forecasted high temperatures next week, we will be allowing our waste contractors Serco to start an hour earlier than normal and begin emptying bins from 6am from Tuesday 12th to Friday 15th July.

As you will appreciate, excessively hot temperatures make working conditions tough for Serco’s collection crews and this will give them more time to work in the cooler part of the day.

This means we will be asking residents to place their waste and recycling containers out by 6am (or the night before). We will be advertising this change on our website and also through social media channels.

If you have any queries, please contact the Council’s Waste Team at wastematters@midsussex.gov.uk.
