Book to Recycle booking system

As a result of the Key Decision, from Monday 12 February 2024 you will need an appointment to visit any Recycling Centre in West Sussex.

You may make a total of five trips to Recycling Centres in a calendar month. When you use these trips, and which centres you visit, is up to you.

Booking an appointment

  • Appointments are available at least 14 days in advance.
  • Same day appointments are available at all sites in the booking scheme.
  • There are a limited number of appointments per day, booked on a ‘first come, first served’ basis.
  • Demand for appointments is likely to be high over certain periods so please cancel unrequired appointments to free up space for other visitors.
  • You need to provide the registration number of the vehicle you will be attending the centre in. If you are hiring a vehicle and this is unknown, you will be asked to show the hire paperwork at the centre.
  • You cannot change the registration number, so ensure this is entered correctly. If you need to change it, you will have to cancel and rebook the appointment.
  • You need to provide your email address so we can send you confirmation of your booking.
  • You need to have checked the vehicle restrictions at your chosen site.

What to do when you arrive

  • Please be patient if there is a queue.
  • Follow instructions from staff to ensure safe use of the centre.

Entry to the centre

You do not need to be at the centre at the exact start time of your appointment - you can arrive at any time within your allotted slot.

Appointments are 15 minutes long for Bognor Regis, Midhurst and Shoreham-By-Sea, or 30 minutes at all other centres. See your confirmation email for more information.

Please wear sensible clothes and footwear and bring a pair of gardening gloves (or similar) when visiting. This helps reduce the risk of accident or injury.

There may be circumstances where refusal of entry to a centre will occur. Staff will turn you away if you:

  • do not have a booking - staff check your vehicle registration number to verify that you have an appointment
  • are too early for your appointment - staff may ask you to re-join the queue or return at your appointment time
  • are late for your appointment
  • do not have your proof of residency and booking confirmation
  • are abusive, as antisocial behaviour is not tolerated.
