Dear Resident,

In reply to a resident’s question I have received some advice from Rother officers about what to do after you have reported a broken brown garden waste bin.

The good news is you can continue to use the bin while you await a replacement. If you have not already done so officers recommend duct taping over the split. If the bin does break during emptying the crew will either take it away if it falls in the back of the dustcart or leave it behind and it will be removed when you get your replacement bin. The wait for your new bin and sticker is currently only 2 weeks.

Best wishes,


Cllr Andrew Mier
