Recycling and Rubbish Collection
Wheelie bins are normally collected on Tuesdays in Pease Pottage, with recyclable material collected one week and landfill rubbish the next. The schedule is not affected by bank holidays, except around Christmas and New Year. An up-to-date calendar of collection dates in PDF can sometimes be found on the Mid Sussex District Council website.
Landfill and Recycling Items
The landfill collection can accept normal household detritus, but NOT clinical or garden waste, electrical goods, or large household items.
The recycling collection can accept plastic bottles, paper, cardboard, glass, cans, aluminium foil and tetra-paks.
Mid Sussex District Council offers a collection service for garden waste in either sacks or wheelie bins, at a cost of about £1 per week. There is currently a waiting list. See the council’s website for details.
There is a composting service for those who are able to transport their garden waste, at KPS Composting, located at Hardriding Farm in Pease Pottage, opposite the motorway service station. A charge will be made.
