Business and commercial waste

Where to dispose of business waste and how much it costs.

Despite there being no statutory requirement for the County Council to dispose of commercial waste, a service has been established at 3 transfer stations within the county:

  • Burgess Hill - Fairbridge Way, Burgess Hill, RH15 8AR
  • Chichester - Coach Road, Westhampnett, PO18 0NS (entrance off Stane Street)
  • Crawley (recyclables only) - Metcalf Way, Crawley, RH11 7XN

They provide a facility for small businesses to dispose of their own recyclables or waste (similar to household waste) using small vehicles, up to a maximum of 7.5 tonnes. Business and commercial waste taken to a household waste recycling site will be turned away.

Construction and demolition waste from businesses cannot be accepted at these sites.

Opening hours and costs

Opening hours for commercial waste at these sites are Monday-Friday, 8.30am-4.30pm.
