New permit scheme launched at Household Waste Recycling Site

Posted on 16 August 2018

From 1 October 2018 West Sussex residents who drive a commercial-type vehicle will need to have a permit to dispose of their household waste at County Council recycling sites.

The free permit will apply to anyone who uses a van, pickup or single axle trailer and will be available to West Sussex residents only, to dispose of their own household waste.

The scheme is being introduced at all 11 Household Waste Recycling Sites (HWRSs) and the two mobile sites.

In addition some vehicles will no longer be allowed to use the sites. Restricted vehicles include:

  • multi axle trailers (four wheels),
  • horse boxes,
  • tipper trucks,
  • flatbed or dropside trucks,
  • luton type vans. 

For health and safety reasons all trailers will be banned from Bognor Regis and Littlehampton sites.

Leaflets will be handed out at all sites to individuals affected by the changes in August and September before the scheme is fully implemented on 1 October 2018. Residents can start applying for a permit now.

Please note that the permit scheme doesn’t apply to commercial or business waste, which still needs to be disposed of at one of our transfer stations. If you’re a tradesperson working in West Sussex please visit our website for more information and charges
