Wednesday 12 April Garden Waste Collection Delays

News : 12 April 2017

We regret to advise that, due to a serious road traffic collision on the A22 at Whitesmith just north of Hailsham, garden waste collections may be delayed today.

Refuse and recycling collection

The section of road closed due to this incident includes the composting facility used by our garden waste collection vehicles.

As a result vehicles that are currently full are unable to offload which prevents them from returning to collect further garden waste. Please be assured we are working with our partners to resolve this problem however, it is possible some locations may not be collected by the end of today.

If your road or area is due a garden waste collection today that does not take place please leave the bin out in readiness for collection and we will make arrangements for these to be emptied over the next few days.

We apologise for any inconvenience that may be caused by this unfortunate situation which is beyond our control.
