We operate an alternate weekly waste and recycling collection service. To see when your collection it due, please see our Waste and recycling collection dates. Most properties are required to use two wheeled bins, a burgundy bin for recycling and a black bin for residual waste. The council also operates a chargeable garden waste collection service for cuttings using a green wheeled bin collected fortnightly.
Use this form to tell us if your bin was not collected on its normal collection day. Once reported we will investigate the missed collection and get back to you. In the meantime, please leave your bin out in its usual place for collection.
- Provided for the leftover rubbish that cannot be recycled or composted.
- It is not for garden waste, rubble, bulky items, corrosive materials/liquids or hot ashes. Empty paint tins only can be placed in the black bin. Tins containing paint should be taken to the local household waste and recycling site.
- Please do not overfill your waste bin; the lid should be closed at all times.
- We will collect additional general waste that cannot fit inside the black bin if it is contained in a biodegradable Council excess waste sack. Waste contained in other bags around the bin will not be taken away. Council sacks cost 60p each and they should be placed next to your black bin on the general waste collection day.
They can be purchased at the following locations:
- East Pallant House, East Street, Chichester, PO19 1TY
- Selsey Town Council, High Street, Selsey
- The Grange, Bepton Road, Midhurst
- Austen and Co Ltd, North Street, Petworth, GU29 9DJ
The collection point for your bins is just inside your property boundary at the nearest point to the public highway/road. All wheeled bins should be placed by 7am on the morning of collection.
Where properties are unsuitable for wheeled bins, alternative arrangements can be made.
For individual properties there is a charge for the provision of new or replacement bins. If you receive Council Tax benefit you are eligible for a 20% discount. Please provide your benefit reference number.
