Free Pallets

Pallet wood available for burning – both broken up and bagged. Bags are located at the side of the small garage in the right hand side of the forecourt of Aviation House, Poynings. Access outside office hours is via a small pedestrian gate on the left. Whole pallets available also, please enquire in the office. Help yourselves but proceed with caution as there are large nails in the pallets.

Christmas collections

Coping with Christmas
There are no garden waste collections between 26th December 2014 and 6th January 2015 (inclusive). For black/blue bins, the changes that are relevant to Fulking residents are that you need to put the relevant bins out on the Tuesdays 27th December and 3rd January rather than the day before. Collections resume their normal pattern on Monday 9th January.

Rubbish Proposal?

Banner - WSCC docs about waste site consultationWest Sussex County Council is running a consultation on the provision of Household Waste Recycling Sites (HWRSs) as it needs to save £18.6m in the coming year.

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.

The consultation runs for 16th May to 12th June. You can respond here (when it opens)
