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.

There will be no garden waste collections between Monday 23 December and Friday 3 January 2020. Garden waste collections will return to normal from Monday 6 January 2020.
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 Saturday 28 December and Friday 10 January 2020 and locations can be found at www.midsussex.gov.uk/treerecycling.
