New waste, recycling and street cleansing contract


New waste, recycling and street cleansing contract

On 29th June 2019 your waste and recycling will be collected under a new contract with Biffa Municipal Ltd. Biffa will also provide street cleansing services to the Rother area.

From 29 June, your waste, recycling and garden waste will be collected by our new contractor, Biffa. 

Recycling just got easier! Previously, you were asked to put your glass in a separate container.  Under the new contract, you no longer need to do this.

From 29 June you no longer need to use your glass recycling box, instead glass will go in your recycling bin. The glass will be separated at the recycling facility and recycled as normal. That's easier recycling for residents and fewer containers to take out to the kerbside.

Your glass box will not be collected - you can keep and re-use it.

Our colleagues at East Sussex County Council have come up with some ideas for how you can repurpose your glass recycling box.

Tetrapak change

There is also a minor change to what can be recycled, Tetrapaks, such as juice or long-life milk cartons, will no longer be processed as recycling and will need to be placed into waste bins, so they can be sent to the Newhaven Energy Recovery Facility. Visit our household recycling pages for a reminder of what can be recycled.
