|Household waste and recycling sites (tips) in East Sussex will begin to re-open to the public from 10am on Monday 18 May.
Sites are expected to be extremely busy and residents are asked to only come to them if you have waste that it’s absolutely essential to dispose of at this time. If you’re able to compost waste, or safely store it at home for the time being, please do.
New Government guidance on how to keep the public and staff safe at waste sites will be followed, including keeping people two metres apart. This means: A limited number of unloading bays will be in use. Only one person at a time will be allowed to use the access ramps. Staff will not be able to help you unload. Trailers and over-sized vehicles will not be allowed on site to avoid lengthy visits.
Chargeable waste – plasterboard, asbestos, tyres, hardcore and soil – will not be accepted. The re-use shops will remain closed.
Its believed that these arrangements are the best way to re-open sites safely. Its recognised that there are likely to be longer waiting times.
