Page under construction…….here is some basic information for now.
Note that this information relates to households within the boundaries of Arun District Council. Eartham, (which is within the parish) falls within the boundary of Chichester District Council and the refuse and recycling collection details are different. We will add that information shortly.
Refuse Collection arrangements Weekly refuse collections take place EVERY Wednesday, carried out by Biffa. They request that your bin or bagged rubbish is put out on the roadway/pavement by 7am.
Recycling Arun provide recycling bins and these are emptied fortnightly, on Wednesdays also by Biffa (but different teams do the recycling collection). Once again, they request that recycling bins are put out by 7am.
For details of WHAT you can (and can’t) put into your recycling bin, please click here
The dates for the recycling collection during the current month are given on the ‘Diary at a Glance’ page of this website – click here to link to the page.
They do not take garden rubbish away unless you subscribe to the additional (and paid for) service, operated by Biffa under the Green Waste Club initiative. Click here for details

Fly tipping & abandoned vehicles
Note that whilst the Westhampnett amenity tip is operating a restricted service, fly tipping is likely to happen more often.
Arun District Council have an on-line reporting service – and generally they are very good at picking up fly-tipped waste PROVIDED they have been informed. Click here for the link to their fly-tipping reporting form
For abandoned vehicles there is a separate reporting system run under the name of ‘Operation Crackdown’ – click here for a link to their reporting form.
