Burgess Hill Tip Accepting A Wider Range Of Waste As From Today (Monday 1st June)
1st June 2020 |
The Burgess Hill Household Waste Recycling Site (HWRS) will be accepting a wider range of rubbish form today (Monday June 1st) three weeks after the site reopened for garden waste and black bags.
What West Sussex County Council Will Accept:
Garden waste, General household waste, Wood, Cardboard, Electrical items, Bulky items, Metal, Furniture and all items other than those specified here.
What They Can't Currently Accept:
Soil / hardcore, plasterboard, asbestos, tyres or textiles
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.
Deborah Urquhart, West Sussex County Council Cabinet Member for Environment, said: “The sites will soon be able to accept a much wider variety of waste, starting from Monday 1st June, including cardboard, electrical items and furniture. I am also pleased to say we are reopening the mobile services at Selsey and the Witterings from Thursday 4 June for green waste and wood only, starting with the Witterings.
“I would like to thank everyone who has been storing their waste safely at home up until now.
“Sites are likely to be busy with long queues so please consider whether your journey is necessary before you set off.”
Vans and pickup trucks with a permit can now enter sites. Trailers are still not allowed at this time, to help ensure social distancing and to limit queues.
