From today (Monday, July 6), a wider range of items will be accepted at Household Waste Recycling Sites in West Sussex.
Soil and hardcore will be accepted at all sites with the exception of Bognor Regis, Midhurst and Westhampnett.
Plasterboard can be deposited at Billingshurst, Burgess Hill, Crawley, Horsham, Littlehampton, Shoreham and Worthing.
While asbestos can be taken to Burgess Hill, Crawley and Worthing.
Vehicles with trailers will also be able to access the Crawley, Billingshurst, and Worthing sites on weekday afternoons only, from 1pm to 6pm, as of Monday, July 6.
In order to minimise queues, people 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.
Cllr 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.”
