From 1 October West Sussex residents who drive a commercial-type vehicle will need to have a permit to dispose of their household waste at County Council recycling sites.

The free permit will apply to anyone who uses a van, pickup or single axle trailer and will be available to West Sussex residents only.

The scheme is being introduced at all 11 Household Waste Recycling Sites (HWRSs) and the two mobile sites.

In addition, some vehicles will no longer be allowed to use the sites. Restricted vehicles include:

multi-axle trailers (four wheels)
- horse boxes
- tipper trucks
- flatbed or dropside trucks
- luton type vans.

For health and safety reasons all trailers will be banned from Bognor Regis and Littlehampton sites.

Leaflets will be handed out at all sites to individuals affected by the changes from 1 August before the scheme is fully implemented.  

Residents can find out more on the website and start applying for a permit now.
