“Missed bins” and what to do about them

Message just received from Rother District Council:

Unfortunately, our waste contractor is experiencing issues processing the large volumes of recycling collected following the Christmas and New Year period. This is creating a backlog of recycling at the processing stage, therefore meaning the vehicles cannot empty recycling collected.

This means that your recycling bin may not be emptied on the scheduled day as the vehicles have reached capacity.

If your recycling collection is missed, please complete our ‘Report a Missed Bin‘ form on our website – and leave your recycling bins out, these will be collected as soon as possible.

Brown Bin (Garden) collections due to be made this week will be delayed by one day. Therefore collections will commence from Wednesday 9th January, households due a garden waste collection on Friday will be collected on Saturday 12th January.

Black Bin (Refuse) collections are unaffected.

Kind Regards,
Rother District Council
