In order for recycling and rubbish to be collected during this busy season, please take note of the applicable dates below and make sure that your bins are at the edge of your property by 7am for collection.

Usual recycling and rubbish collection dates will resume from Monday 2 January 2023. Garden waste collections are suspended from Monday 26 December 2022 and will resume on Monday 9 January 2023.

Please remember that cards and wrapping paper – not including foil and glitter – can be put in your recycling bin, and that any extra recycling can be placed in a non-black bag next to your recycling bin. You can recycle your real Christmas tree in your garden waste bin or, if you are not subscribed to the service, you can recycle your real Christmas tree at your local Household Recycling Site.

Wealden District Council’s portfolio holder for Waste Councillor Ray Cade said, “During the festive period, many households produce extra recycling and waste so it’s therefore vital that collections continue to go ahead. This year, we’re fortunate that collections will go ahead with only a one-day delay, which will ensure that households across the district will still be able to dispose of recycling and waste appropriately.”
