Household waste - garden waste
There are four ways to dispose of/recycle your garden waste:
- If you live in an area where the Green Bin Composting Service operates, for £45/year (by Direct Debit and subject to change in April) you can have your garden cuttings collected on a fortnightly basis in a green wheeled bin and turned into compost. The collection point for your green wheeled bin is just outside your property boundary so it is visible to the collection crew.
- In areas where the Green Bin Composting Service does not operate, you can dispose of small amounts of garden waste using a garden waste sack, at £1 each, available from our offices at East Pallant House or from selected retailers. Once your sack is full, put it out on your waste collection day.
- Garden waste can be taken to the Household Waste Recycling sites operated by West Sussex County Council.
- You can compost garden waste at home. See the Recycling section of this site for more details.
