Release date: 8 September 2020
Recycling Centres across West Sussex are starting to open up more fully, with most sites now accepting trailers.
Single axle trailers are now accepted at most Recycling Centres excluding Littlehampton, Horsham and Bognor Regis. Residents will still need to bring a permit for these types of vehicle.
The Westhampnett Recycling Centre is now accepting construction materials, this includes soil, hardcore, plasterboard and asbestos. The site will be open for trade waste (waste brought in from businesses) and charity waste later in the month.
The East Grinstead Recycling Centre will now open for seven days a week. This is while the Crawley Recycling Centre remains closed following a fire.
A temporary Recycling Centre facility is being constructed at Crawley. This will be situated within the grounds of the current Recycling Centre at Crawley and is due to open towards the end of September.
Deborah Urquhart, West Sussex County Council Cabinet Member for Environment, said: “I am pleased to announce that our Recycling Centre are now starting to open up more fully to trailers and construction waste. Our Crawley Recycling Centre remains closed following the recent fire, however a temporary site is being constructed and the Recycling Centre in East Grinstead is now open seven days.
“These changes will make it easier for residents to use the sites and to recycle. Anyone planning on visiting a site is encouraged to check our website for the most up to date information.”
