Closure of Household Waste Recycling Sites

Posted on 22 March 2020

All Household Waste Recycling Sites (HWRS) across West Sussex are now closed until further notice due to the current Covid-19 situation.

This is to reinforce the need for social distancing, protecting staff and highway safety. 

With high numbers of visits, the risks of spread are greater and we cannot encourage this risk or guarantee visitor or staff safety at the HWRSs.

We will be looking at measures that can be taken to enable us to re-open the sites safely, but for the time being we have no choice but to close them entirely.

We will issue guidance on disposal of excess waste, with the focus on vulnerable and elderly residents in the first instance.

Thank you for your patience and understanding and please check the West Sussex Recycles website for updates and further information.
