Collection days will return to normal from Monday 12 January.  

Most people find that they generate extra waste over the festive period, so please note that the collection crews will pick up any additional waste on your first collection after Christmas. 

Householders can now print out their personalised waste and recycling calendar for 2015 by visiting Chichester District Council's website: 
Alternatively people can visit the home page and find the 'most popular' section,  click on 'find rubbish collection day' then enter their postcode or first line of their address and press 'Submit'.  
People who do not have access to a computer or need further help should call 01243 534619, and one of the council's staff will be happy to send out a printed copy to their home address.

The green bin composting service will stop over the Christmas and New Year period from Saturday 21 December. It will resume again on Monday 6 January 2014. Please consult your green waste calendar for further information.

There will also be some slight changes to clinical waste collections. All affected residents will be notified in writing.
