Service announcement

Online services for Lewes will be unavailable from 7.30am for up to five hours on Saturday 24th August while we carry out essential maintenance. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

New and replacement bins

If your household waste bin or recycling equipment has been lost or damaged, you can order a replacement using our online form.

If you are signed up for garden waste collections and your bin has been lost or damaged, you will need to request a replacement or additional garden waste bin separately.

To reduce odours, maintain street cleanliness and to protect rubbish from animals, we strongly recommend residents put their rubbish in a wheelie bin. Rubbish must be bagged before being put in the bin.

Important information for Lewes district residents

Use the online form to replace a lost or damaged recycling bin or food waste caddy.

You can also use this form to request a second recycling wheelie bin for your home.

We sell two sizes of wheelie bins for domestic refuse. You can pay online when you place the order, and we will deliver your bin within four weeks:

  • Smaller 140 litre bins are suitable for households with 1-4 people. They cost £20 including VAT and delivery. 
  • Larger 240 litre bins are suitable for households with 5 or more people. They cost £30 including VAT and delivery.

Important information for Eastbourne residents

You can request a new black rubbish bin or green recycling bin using the online form. We no longer offer recycling boxes or glass recycling boxes.

You can also request a bigger black rubbish bin if:

  • you are recycling everything you can; and
  • there are more than five people in your household; or
  • you produce more rubbish due to medical reasons
