MSDC advise of temporary change to bin collections due to hot weather
From Thursday 2 August the Mid Sussex recycling and rubbish collections will start from 6am. The hot temperatures we’re experiencing this summer mean working conditions are tough for our bin collection crews and this change will give them more time to work in the cooler part of the day.Please ensure your bins and boxes are placed out ready for collection the evening before, in plenty of time for the early start.
Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
