Important information for Eastbourne residents

We are encouraging all residents to reduce refuse (rubbish) and recycle as much as they can. We can provide extra recycling bins to help you do this.

You can request recycling bins using the online form

Rubbish bins 

We will only empty one rubbish bin per house as standard. Most households will have a 180L black wheeled bin for rubbish which should be sufficient if you are recycling everything that you can and reducing the amount of rubbish you generate. 

Experience of other councils which have changed to fortnightly rubbish collections has been that most residents are able to manage with their existing bins. We are asking residents to see how they get on with their existing rubbish bin for a few weeks to check whether they really need the extra bin space.

You can request a larger or additional rubbish bin using the online form but each request will be considered on an individual basis and we may need further information from you.
