Rother District Council are doing everything they can to continue providing waste collection services.

The impact of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is being felt across all service areas. With many households self-isolating it is likely that our waste contractor Biffa will see some disruption to staffing levels. We want to assure you that we have been working across the Joint Waste Partnership to manage this and ensure we are able to keep this service running.

Household waste (Black bin / sack)

All rounds deployed, report missed bins as usual.

Recycling (green bin / pink sack)

All rounds deployed, report missed bins as usual.

Garden waste (Brown Bin)

To protect the priority waste collection services over the next four weeks garden waste services will now be suspended across the Rother District.This suspension will remain in place until at least week ending Friday 24 April. We will continue to update you as this situation evolves and we apologise for any inconvenience. Please be assured that existing subscribers will have their lack of service due to this suspension taken into consideration at the time of their subscription renewal in July 2020.

As the situation evolves, Rother Distict Council will continue to post service updates on thier website. For more detailed information please see the Rother Distict Council website.
