Mid Sussex District Council is reminding residents that waste and recycling collection days will change over the Christmas and New Year period.

Christmas flyers with details of collections over the festive period and other recycling information have been posted to all Mid Sussex homes in the run up to Christmas.

Householders can also access personalised information about their collection days online by entering their postcode at www.midsussex.gov.uk/collectioncalendar .

There will be no garden waste collections between Monday 24 December and Friday 4 January 2019. Garden waste collections will return to normal from Monday 7 January 2019.

Householders with a real Christmas tree can recycle it in their garden waste bin as long as the lid can be closed. Alternatively there will be temporary sites where residents can drop off real Christmas trees for recycling. These sites will be open between Sunday 29 December and Friday 11 January and locations are available at www.midsussex.gov.uk/treerecycling.
