Wheelie bins

Latest updates on rollout of wheelie bins for refuse in Lewes district

Report a missed bin collection

In Lewes district, many of our collection days changed from Monday 4 March 2024.

Before reporting a missed collection, please refer to your new collection calendar to ensure you have the correct date.

You can download a copy of your calendar from Environment First website

Before you start

  • Our collection crews log all bins that have and have not been placed on your property boundary by 6am on collection days. Only bins put out by 6am and not emptied by our waste teams can be reported as a missed collection below. This applies to both Lewes district and Eastbourne.

I didn't put my bin out for collection. What can I do?

  • We can't return to an address if the bin or container wasn't put out, even if it was a mistake. We will collect on your next collection date
  • If you can't wait until your next collection, you can take uncollected household waste to your local household waste recycling site
  • If you are struggling to get your bin out due to illness, injury or other difficulties, you can request an assisted collection service
