But what happens when the bins overflow or collections get missed? Fret not; Croydon Waste is here to bridge the gap. This guide offers insights into Brighton's bin collection, covering all facets from commercial entities to households.


Understanding Brighton's Bin Collection System


Brighton's waste management is well-defined and structured. Depending on the waste type, the city offers distinct bins:





  • General Waste: A weekly affair, ensuring that day-to-day trash doesn't pile up.
  • Recycling: Bi-weekly collections, emphasizing the importance of sustainability and eco-friendliness.
  • Garden Waste: An optional service collected every other week, catering to the green thumbs of Brighton.


The city is divided into different zones, each with a specific collection day:

Commercial Waste vs. Domestic Waste: What's the Difference?

Businesses, given their scale, often have varied waste as compared to households. Let's break it down:






Commercial Waste:

Businesses, from eateries spewing out food waste to offices churning out paper waste, have specific disposal protocols. Some may even require specialized services for hazardous or electronic waste.

Domestic Waste:

Households, on the other hand, have a more standardized waste pattern. Apart from the usual, some might need services for garden waste or the occasional bulky item disposal.


Navigating Through Holiday Schedules and Potential Strikes

Holidays, as merry as they are, might disrupt the usual bin collection rhythm. During festivities like Christmas or New Year, the regular routine might see some tweaks. But no worries, Brighton Council always has an updated schedule ready.

And then there are those rare labor strikes, causing potential delays or even halts in the collection. Stay updated with local news to be in the loop.
