Mid Sussex District Council extends food waste collection trial

Mid Sussex District Council has said it is extending its food waste collection trial.

Since its launch in 2022, the trial has received a lot of community support among the participating households. Later this year, it will be welcoming an additional 2000 residents to participate.

Councillor Chris Hobbs, Cabinet Member for Leisure and Customer Services at Mid Sussex District Council, said: “We are so pleased that the food trial has been so well-received and as a result of this positive feedback, we are really excited to announce that we will be extending the programme. On average, participating households have reduced the waste in their bins by an impressive two kilograms per week and it’s been fantastic to see our community adopting to new, sustainable habits and helping to reduce waste.

“We are also thrilled to announce that we will be able to expand the food waste trial to include 2000 more households later this year. By taking these proactive measures now, we’re not only improving our environment but are getting ahead of the curve for the forthcoming 2026 legislation on waste management.”

Residents in the trial area will be notified of its extension via a letter. Click here to find out more about the trial.
