Burgess Hill Tip Now Accepting 'Construction Waste' As From Today (Monday 6th July)
6th July 2020 |
The Burgess Hill Household Waste Recycling Site (HWRS) will be accepting a wider range of waste from today (Monday July 6th)
Soil and hardcore, plasterboard and asbestos can all be taken to Burgess Hill's tip to be disposed of.
Textiles and tyres are also being accepted. The price of disposing of a tyre has increased from £4 to £5.
Vehicles with trailers are not currently being accepted at Burgess Hill.
West Sussex County Council have advised that in order to minimise queues, residents are asked not to arrive at the sites before they open, and to check opening times and days online before setting off.
To help ensure social distancing measures are maintained, unless strictly necessary for unloading large or heavy items, only one person should get out of the vehicle. Residents who require assistance, for example due to mobility issues, can request help by speaking to a member of staff.
Deborah Urquhart, West Sussex County Council Cabinet Member for Environment, said: “I would like to thank residents for their patience and support during the first few weeks of reopening the Household Waste Recycling Sites across the county.
“The sites are now accepting a much wider range of materials, and while sites have been busy, queueing has eased considerably
“Vans and pickup trucks with a permit have been able to access sites over the last month and trailers will now start to be allowed on selected sites on weekday afternoons – all to help ensure social distancing.”
