East Grinstead Household Waste Recycling site

The West Sussex County Council site at Imberhorne Lane will be CLOSED on Tuesdays and Wednesdays and open from Thursdays to Mondays, 10 am – 7 pm in summer and 10 am – 5 pm in winter.

Charges now apply to certain types of waste. Click here for details.

As of 1st October 2018 a new scheme for 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 HWRSs. Restricted vehicles include:
• multi axle trailers (four wheels),
• horse boxes,
• tipper trucks,
• flatbed or dropside trucks,
• Luton (box) type vans.
