2 Japanese Knotweed

Japanese Knotweed is a very invasive weed and highly damaging to the built and natural environment. It is for this reason that Japanese Knotweed is not accepted at any Household Waste Recycling Site in West Sussex. Any soils, within a 7 metre radius, surrounding Japanese Knotweed will not be accepted at any Household Waste Recycling Site.

Management of Japanese Knotweed is subject to strict controls and regulated by the Environment Agency. For further information about Japanese Knotweed, please visit the Environment Agency website.

4 Junk mail

All junk mail can be placed in your recycling bin at home. Please remove any plastic packaging as this cannot be recycled.
