Welcome to Lewes and Eastbourne Councils' new joint website

Household recycling collection service

All residents are encouraged to recycle as much of their waste as possible to help us raise our recycling rates. The service varies across the region, so choose your local council below to find out how recycling is collected in your area.

All residents are encouraged to participate in our Box It! kerbside recycling scheme to help us reduce waste and to recycle as much as possible. If you sign up, you can recycle a huge range of items that we will collect every other week.
