Wealden District Council and our waste collection contractor, Biffa, apologise for any inconvenience that may be caused by the disruption to waste collections due to the adverse weather conditions.
All collection crews have been deployed today however many un-gritted rural roads and urban side roads remain slippery. Whilst we are working hard to empty all bins possible on the scheduled collection days, regrettably due to the slippery conditions it is likely we will be unable to complete some collections.
Refuse, Recycling & Garden Waste Collections
Please place your bin out as normal. If we are unable to collect your road or area you do not need to report a missed collection to us. Please leave you bin out and our crews will be recording where they have not been able to access to arrange a return collection as the earliest opportunity. Currently we anticipate any missed collections will be caught up over the course of this week and will be completed by the end of Saturday at the latest.
Please only contact us to report a missed collection if you placed your bin out by 7am and it was not emptied whilst your neighbour’s bins have been emptied. This can be done up to 5 pm the next working day through our website at www.wealden.gov.uk or by calling our contact centre on 01323 443322.
Please continue to check our website regularly for the latest updates.
Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
