From 1 October 2018

The permit will apply to anyone who uses a van, pickup or single axle trailer and will be available to West Sussex residents only.

Please note: Vans over 2.2 meters high must use Burgess Hill, Westhampnett and Worthing sites only.

The scheme is being introduced at all 11 West Sussex Household Waste Recycling Sites and the two mobile sites.

In addition, some vehicles will no longer be allowed to use HWRSs. Restricted vehicles include:

  • horse boxes,
