You can share a bin with a neighbour. However, one of you will need to subscribe to and pay for the service. The bin will be registered to one property and collected from that address.
If you renew the subscription, please ensure you renew at the same address.
We recommend that garden waste is composted at home or taken to a Household Waste Recycling Site if you do not wish to subscribe to the garden waste service.
Home composting is the most environmentally friendly method of dealing with your garden waste. Lots of helpful advice is available at the East Sussex website. Great value compost bins can be ordered from Getcomposting, by calling 0844 5714444. Prices start at £22.00 plus £6.99 for delivery.
Residential bonfires cause air pollution and can be a nuisance.
If you move house we are not able to transfer your subscription or provide a refund. Any new resident can make use of the subscription until it expires.
Customers will be able to subscribe and pay for up to four garden waste bins at their property. Each bin will cost £55 per year.

If you have lots of garden waste you may wish to pay for extra garden waste bins. You may subscribe for up to four bins at a cost of £55 per bin per year. Alternatively, you can take your garden waste free of charge to your local Household Waste Recycling Site (external link).
Yes, you can sign up at any point during the year. You will pay for the remaining months on a pro-rata basis until the end of the subscription period. Registrations made in the last two months of the current subscription year will be for the next subscription year.
