When is my bin collection day?

Latest update – Thursday 20 January 2022: All refuse and recycling rounds resumed in Eastbourne on Wednesday 19 January. 

If you live in Eastbourne please put your bins out on your usual scheduled days. 

On your next recycling collection day we will accept additional recycling but please put this out in securely tied see-through plastic bags so our crew can see that it is recycling. Please be aware that we cannot accept recycling in black sacks.

Unfortunately we will not be able to return to rounds missed as a result of the GMB Union strike but be assured that your waste will be taken away on your next scheduled collection day.
