It has been a long time coming but I’m pleased to announce that as from mid April this year the garden waste collection will be rolled out to residents in my ward which includes: Falmer, St Ann Without, Kingston, Swanborough, Iford, Northease, Rodmell, Southease & Piddinghoe. Not only will it save residents’ time and effort of taking garden waste to the tip, but it will reduce car journeys and therefore C02 emissions. The garden waste service is an optional service and so if you want to use the service please sign up for it, – just click on the image to the left and it will take you to the Lewes District Council page which explains the service and at the bottom of that page you will find a link to the signup page. That’s the good news! However the service is not free, like other councils around the country LDC charge for the service which operates currently 10 months of the year. During February residents will receive a leaflet offering the service which will contain information about signing up.
Once signed-up the council will provide you with a 240 litre garden waste wheelie bin and a calendar showing your fortnightly collection dates. Also if you need help with the wheelie bin you can apply for assisted collections. All details are on the council web page.
