New Permit Scheme at WSCC Household Waste Recycling Sites

A new scheme means householders in West Sussex who use a van, pickup or single axle trailer for private purposes will need to obtain a free permit.    This comes into effect from 1 October 2018.    The permit is available to West Sussex residents only and allows those who drive a commercial-type vehicle or have a trailer to continue to use it to dispose of just their household waste. The scheme does not cover waste generated by a business or household waste that has been collected by a trader for a charge.

The permits are being introduced to help address congestion at the sites, eliminate illegal disposal of commercial waste and discourage out-of-county visitors from bringing in large loads.   Over 8,000 permits have been issued so far.

As well as the new permit scheme, some vehicles will no longer be allowed to use HWRSs. Restricted vehicles include:

• multi axle trailers (four wheels),
• horse boxes,
• tipper trucks,
• flatbed or dropside trucks,
• Luton (box) type vans.
