Service update Tuesday 22 July

In some parts of the city refuse and recycling collections were not completed Friday 18 July which is being collected today. There have also been problems accessing some parts of Hollingdean due to road works and in the London Road and Hartington Road areas due to vehicle breakdowns. We are clearing these today.

Due to industrial action on Thursday 10 July there was no refuse or recycling collections. Recycling collections are due this week on Thursday 24 July.

Between collections you can take refuse or recycling to the Brighton or Hove Household Waste and Recycling Centres. Recycling can also be taken to your local recycling points.

We are very sorry for any inconvenience.
