HWRS Permits

#7 – Do you need a Household Waste Recycling Site permit?

Posted on 4 January 2019

Having a clear out after Christmas or a New Year declutter?

Need to visit your local Household Waste Recycling Site (HWRSs)?

Don’t forget that if you drive a commercial-type vehicle you will need to have a permit to dispose of your household waste at County Council recycling sites.

The free permit applies to anyone who uses a van, pickup or single axle trailer and is available to West Sussex residents only.

The scheme is active at all 11 HWRSs and the two mobile sites.

We’ve also introduced some new vehicle restrictions.

Find out more and apply for your 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
