Cllr Susan Prochak, deputy leader of Rother District Council, said: “We are publicising the Christmas and New Year rubbish and recycling collection dates well in advance of the festive celebrations so residents are aware of the changes and people have time to plan.

“I would encourage everyone to check their collection dates on our website to make sure they know the day their bins will be emptied over the holiday period.

“Residents may also wish to sign up to My Alerts, the council’s weekly email service, which includes regular information on bin collections.”
