The West Sussex Waste Partnership

In West Sussex the County Council is the ‘Waste Disposal Authority’, responsible for the safe disposal of household waste collected by the district and borough councils. The County Council also provides Household Waste Recycling Sites (HWRSs) where residents can deliver their household waste for recycling and disposal. You can find more information on the sites on

Please note that due to Covid-19 all HWRSs across West Sussex are currently closed to both the public and commercial carriers. This is to help prevent the spread of Covid-19 and for the safety of both residents and the site staff. Please be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter for updates on when the sites will reopen.

There are seven district and borough councils in West Sussex: Adur District Council, Arun District Council, Chichester District Council, Crawley Borough Council, Horsham District Council, Mid Sussex District Council, and Worthing Borough Council.

The district and borough councils as ‘Waste Collection Authorities’ are responsible for the collection of household waste in their respective areas.

The West Sussex Waste Partnership (WSWP) brings together all of the local authorities in West Sussex with the aim of  working effectively together,  providing the best possible services for their residents.
