Wealden District Council and its collection contractor Kier are very sorry to advise we will be unable to collect clinical waste and sharps boxes scheduled for today, Tuesday 8 August 2017, due to a mechanical fault with the collection vehicle.

Collections that were due today will be completed on Saturday 12 August instead. Please ensure your clinical waste bags and sharps boxes are available from 6am on Saturday 12 August in readiness for collection.

Additionally we are very sorry to advise that some collections for garden waste were unable to be completed yesterday due to vehicle breakdowns and staff shortages. The areas affected include parts of Buxted, Heathfield and Hailsham

Please be assured we are making every effort to ensure these bins are emptied as soon as possible. We expect the bins in Heathfield and Hailsham to be collected today 8 August with Buxted to be collected on Thursday 10 August.

We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
