Waste recycling consultation by East Sussex County Council

Our 12-week consultation on our Household Waste Recycling Site Service has now started and ends at midnight on 15 May. The online survey is now live on the Consultation Hub.

A link to the survey, as well as FAQs and the full Service Review are available here on our website.

We are consulting on these proposals:

  • ·The introduction of charging for certain waste types that are not ‘household waste’ (i.e. rubble, soil, plasterboard, tyres and asbestos) at the Household Waste Recycling Sites
  • ·The possible closure of the part-time recycling sites at Forest Row and Wadhurst
  • ·A review of recycling site opening hours against demand for the service

We would like to hear from anyone in East Sussex with an interest in the recycling sites, particularly if they feel they would be affected by our proposals.

After the consultation period has ended, the views people share with us will be analysed and presented to East Sussex County Council’s Cabinet later this year to help the Members make a final decision on what happens to the service.
