Important information for Eastbourne residents
You can request a replacement black rubbish bin or green recycling bin using the online form, you can also request an additional recycling bin. We no longer offer recycling boxes or glass recycling boxes because glass is accepted in your recycling wheelie bin.
You may request a larger black rubbish bin if:
- you are recycling everything you can; and
- you cannot reduce the amount of waste you generate; or
- you produce more rubbish due to medical reasons
From Monday 12 April 2021 refuse (rubbish) bin collections in Eastbourne will move to from weekly to fortnightly. Recycling collections will stay as they are.
We have had more people asking for an extra refuse bins or for a larger bin. The experience of other councils in East Sussex which have changed to fortnightly refuse collections has been that most residents are able to manage with their existing bins. You are able to request an addition or larger refuse bin but we are asking residents to see how they get on with their existing bins for a few weeks to check whether they really need the extra bins space first before placing a bin request.
