Garden Waste


Please Note:

We are working hard with our contractors to continue to provide waste services as a priority and these are currently running on their normal schedule.  If there are impacts as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic we may need to reduce the service we provide.  If your bin is missed please do not call us, check for the latest information on waste / recycling collections here or on our social media channels. If the service is due to change we will update this page and our social media to let you know.

Green waste club

A chargeable garden waste collection service is available to Arun residents. Members of the Green Waste Club will receive a fortnightly collection of their garden waste and the hire of a wheelie bin for this purpose. All waste collected is composted at a local facility and used in the Earth Cycle compost range. This service is provided on behalf of Arun District Council by our contractors, Biffa. You can find out more and sign up to the scheme on the Green Waste Club website, or by telephoning 0800 0858 286. Garden waste can also be taken directly to your local household waste recycling centre.


Home composting

All of your raw kitchen waste (such as vegetable peelings and egg shells) could be composted. You can also compost shredded paper and garden waste. To find out more about food waste digesters or home composting please follow the appropriate link.
