The Council is under a general duty to make arrangements for the collection of household waste, but there are variations on the service offered to residents due to the wide range of locations we collect from.
For many households throughout Rother, collection is mainly an alternate weekly kerbside service. This means that a collection of general waste will be followed on week two by a collection of recycling and, where applicable, garden waste. Details of what items can be presented under these 3 main collection services can be found here What can i put in my bins ?.
We plan to expand the service whenever possible to include as many households who can feasibly be collected from via this scheme.
From an individual new build to a whole new development, information for planners, developers and architects can be found here about the requirements to consider to allow waste and recycling to be consistently collected. Please see related documents at the bottom of this page.
The service to residents in flats or town centre locations varies due to certain limitations such as space available in communal areas or street restrictions, specific to individual sites. Details of these should have been received when you move in and are communicated on an ongoing basis.
Please do not hesitate to contact Customer Services with any questions you may have on specific collections.
