A message from WSCC:
From 1 December 2019 only West Sussex residents will be able to use our 11 Household Waste Recycling Sites (HWRSs).
This new system is expected to save local taxpayers £250,000 per year.
Surveys have shown that an average of one in ten people using HWRSs closest to the county borders live outside of West Sussex.
It’s thought the high number of people travelling across county boundaries is down to tougher restrictions imposed by neighbouring authorities.
In order to show they live in the county residents will have to show some ID to enter the sites, for example:
• Current driving licence (photo card or paper licence)
• Council tax or utility bill – less than a year old
• Utility bill – i.e. electric, gas etc.
