Welcome to West Sussex recycles

Recycling is easy. There are lots of items you can recycle in West Sussex.

On this website you'll find information about what you can put in your recycling bin at home and what other things you can recycle at your local Household Waste Recycling Site.

You can also find out what happens to your recycling once it has been picked up from your home and taken to Ford Materials Recycling Facility (MRF) for the next stage of the recycling process.

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

  • multi axle trailers,
  • 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. Residents can start applying for a permit from1 August 2018.
