Westhampnett HWRS Usage Update

Household Waste and Recycling sites

Household Waste Recycling Sites, which are run by West Sussex County Council, will start accepting more items including wood, furniture and electrical items from Monday 1 June. Residents will be able to dispose of the following items at all sites in West Sussex: • garden waste • general household waste • wood • cardboard • electrical items • bulky items • white goods • furniture. Unfortunately, soil, hardcore, plasterboard, asbestos, tyres and textiles/clothes will not be allowed at this time. This is to ensure social distancing measures can be maintained and to limit queues. The mobile services at Selsey and the Witterings will begin reopening from Thursday 4 June for wood and green waste only, starting with the Witterings. Residents are still asked to only visit sites if their journey is necessary and their waste or recycling is not suitable for kerbside collection. Social distancing measures are in place at all sites which means a smaller number of people will be allowed in at one time, and could result in long queues. Vans and pickups will be permitted on site with the correct permits. Residents will still need to bring a permit for these types of vehicle. Unfortunately, trailers will still not be allowed at this time to allow for social distancing in light of restrictions around COVID-19 and to limit queues.

To apply for a van permit, visit:

Refuse and recycling

Bins are being emptied as usual, including household waste, recycling, green recycling and trade waste. The teams have been working really hard to make sure that all services are running.
