The main proposals affecting Fulking residents are plans to limit the opening hours of the Burgess Hill and Shoreham sites (Shoreham closed Mon & Tues), and to charge more for non-household waste.
Residents with a green bin can put their tree directly into it, as long as the lid closes firmly. Residents who do not have a green bin can take their tree to Rushfields between Friday 2nd January and Friday 16th January 2015. Lots of other options here [PDF].
There are no garden waste collections between 22nd December 2014 and 4th January 2015 (inclusive). For black/blue bins, the only change that is relevant to Fulking residents is that you need to put the relevant bin out on Saturday 20th December instead of on Monday 22nd December (there is no change in respect of Monday 29th December).
More than 2,000 ravers attended leaving rubbish, including smashed bottles, beer cases, clothing and gas canisters strewn across the site after they partied for more than 24 hours. Volunteers helped to clear about 250 bags of waste ..
Charlie Cain, head ranger of the Devil’s Dyke estate, said [that] .. there is broken glass all over the Downs that is going to cause problems for years.
Elsewhere, the head ranger said:
The mess left behind after [the] rave at Devil’s Dyke was terrible. Fences and gates were cut and cattle had been separated from their water supply.
Updated 2nd June.
Spring is almost upon us so please come along to the North Town Field next Saturday to help us get it ready for the long warm days to come. Bring gardening tools please.

Please get involved in keeping the village tidy and free of rubbish.
There are four meeting points:
- Party 1 starts at the corner of Clappers/Holmbush lanes and moves South;
- Party 2 starts at the corner of The Street/Clappers Lane and moves North;
- Party 3 meets at the Ram House by the Shepherd and Dog and moves up The Street;
- Party 4 meets at The Deans in Poynings Road and moves towards The Street.
Take care of traffic, wear bright colours and please bring suitable gloves and bin liners to collect the rubbish. Dispose of collected rubbish in your wheelie bins. If this time is not convenient choose your own time and do your bit. Perhaps ending up at the Shepherd & Dog for a well earned pint!
Any queries give me a call on 271.
