Collection days will return to normal from Monday 18 January 2021. Residents can download and print out their own personalised waste, recycling and garden recycling collection dates by visitingwww.chichester.gov.uk/wastecollectioncalendar
Any extra waste from the holiday period will be picked up by collection crews on the first collection after Christmas. If residents have any extra recycling, they need to ensure that it is kept dry in a loosely tied black sack and placed next to their recycling bin on the day of collection. Please remember to flatten and fold down cardboard. All polystyrene foam and polythene wrapping film should be removed and placed in the waste bin as this cannot be recycled.
There will also be some slight changes to the clinical waste collections — all affected residents will be contacted directly.
The Garden Recycling Service will stop over Christmas and New Year from Friday 18 December and will start again on Monday 4 January 2021. Residents who are signed up to this service can use it to recycle their real Christmas tree.
Residents can also dispose of their real Christmas trees using the St Wilfrid’s Hospice charity collection scheme again this year, which will run from Wednesday 6 – Tuesday 26 January 2021. People can arrange to have their tree collected from their home by a volunteer in return for a donation to the hospice. Chichester District Council is supporting this scheme by ensuring that all the trees are recycled. People can find out more about this scheme by visiting https://stwh.co.uk/support-us/events/christmastrees or calling 01243 755 184.
