Civic Amenity Refuse Collection: This is organised by the Village Council twice a year for the benefit of residents. The next collection will be in April 2020 (date to be advised). Collections take place from 10 am until 12 noon at the Village Centre car park. This is for household waste only – no trade or builders or garden waste allowed.
FLY-TIPPING: Please report any incidents to the Parish Council Office. Fly-tipping is a criminal offence and carries a fine of £1000.
You can also report fly-tipping here to Mid Sussex District Council
From the 1st December 2019, you will need to show proof that you are a West Sussex resident before using any of the County Council’s waste sites, including the one at East Grinstead. Acceptable forms of ID are a current driving licence (preferred) or TV licence, utility or Council Tax bill, or letter from Home Office or HMRC.

Charges now apply for the disposal of tyres from domestic vehicles. Click here for details.
Charges were previously introduced for the disposal of items considered to be household DIY waste, however these charges have now been suspended pending a review of Government guidance.
As of 1st October 2018 householders in West Sussex who use a van, pickup or single axle trailer for private purposes will need to obtain a free permit. 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.
As well as the new permit scheme, some vehicles will no longer be allowed to use Household Waste Recycling Sites. Restricted vehicles include:
• multi axle trailers (four wheels),
• horse boxes,
• tipper trucks,
• flatbed or dropside trucks,
• Luton (box) type vans.
