Household Waste Recycling Sites are open for essential use only.
Veolia South Downs Household Waste Recycling Sites are open to the public , however, with social distancing still necessary, the service will be restricted and we encourage you to only travel to a site if absolutely necessary.
Further changes from Monday 6th July:
Vans are permitted on Tuesdays and Thursdays only. Two forms of ID are required and details will be recorded for monitoring and enforcement purposes. Trailers are not currently permitted.
Chargeable waste (hardcore, soil, plasterboard, tyres and bonded asbestos) is now being accepted again at East Sussex sites.
Most re-use shops remain closed and compost sales are suspended.
Clothing and shoes are not currently being accepted for recycling due to the reprocessors not accepting the material due to the virus.
All sites are now back to normal opening times. Please click on your relevant HWRS tab below for full details on your recycling facilities across the region and for the exact times at your nearest site.
Anyone in self isolation or with COVID-19 symptoms must not visit the HWRS's under any circumstances.
Social distancing of two metres will need to be maintained on site, meaning the number of parking bays will be limited and only one person will be allowed to use the access ramps at any one time.
Residents are asked to avoid bringing additional people with them in the car if possible, but please note that staff will not be able to assist with unloading.
Please don’t rely on the opening hours displayed in Google Maps as this may not be up to date with the correct opening times.
