During the festive period there will be some changes to the collection days for your refuse, recycling and garden waste.

In the Chichester district, collection dates will not change in the week leading up to Christmas (starting Monday December 16). However, for some collections, bins will need to be put out later during the Christmas period.

On Christmas Day (Friday December 25) collections for refuse will be on Monday December 28; New Year’s Eve (Thursday, December 31) will be Saturday January 22; and New Year’s Day (Friday January 1) will be on Monday January 4. In the week starting Monday January 4, all bin collections will take place the next day.

Waste and recycling collection days will return to normal from Monday January 11.

In the Arun district, collections over the Christmas period will not change unless your normal collection day is Friday, in which case it will be a day late.

Therefore, Christmas Day (Friday December 25) will be collected on Boxing Day (Saturday December 26), and New Year’s Day (Friday January 1) will be collected on Saturday January 2.

This arrangement covers household refuse, recycling, clinical waste and sharps collections.
