Despite there being no statutory requirement for the County Council to dispose of commercial waste, a service has been established. This is to provide a disposal facility for businesses seeking to dispose of their waste and recycling using small vehicles, which are not generally suitable for access to tipping areas on landfill sites.
Currently 3 County Council facilities are licensed to accept commercial waste and recycling from businesses:
Business and commercial waste cannot be taken to a household waste recycling site and businesses trying to use these facilities will be turned away.
|Type of waste||Per tonne||Minimum charge|
|WEEE CAT A&E||£141||£19|
|WEEE CAT B, C, D||£398||£30|
|Charge Category WEEEB2C||£141||£141|
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is required for admittance to all sites. This includes, but is not limited to, amber flashing beacons, reversing bleepers, hardhat, hi-visibility jacket/vest, steel-toe and mid-sole boots. Further information is available below.
Recycling other materials
The West Sussex Sustainable Business Partnership (WSSBP) can help businesses looking to recycle materials that are not currently accepted at the commercial waste sites above, such as plasterboard.
