Rubbish and recycling update
Strike action suspended
Strike action proposed for Thursday 12 and Friday 13 March has been suspended - please make sure your bin is out for collection by 7am.
Advice to residents during industrial action
GMB Union members working for Kier, Rother District Council's waste collection contractor, have given notice of strike action on Thursday, March 12 and Friday, March 13.
Collection services during this time are not being suspended and residents are being asked to put their bins out by 7am on the morning of their collection day as usual.
If your collection does not take place on the scheduled day, please leave your bin at the normal collection point and it will be collected as soon as possible. The district council and Kier will be aware of the roads where collections have been missed due to strike action, so there is no need for residents in those roads to notify the council of non-collection.
Please only report your collection as missed if other properties on your street have had their collection.
Rother District Council will continue to monitor the situation and work with Kier to ensure the impact on residents living in the district is kept to a minimum.
