West Sussex County Council arranges mobile household waste recycling facilities that serve the Horsham District on some weekends. For those weeks when provision is made for non-recyclable refuse a refuse collection vehicle is brought to four mobile sites in Steyning, Henfield, Pulborough and Storrington. The vehicle is available from 09:00 and leaves PROMPTLY at 15:30.

Only bulky household refuse is accepted. Trade and demolition waste is NOT accepted. Do not leave any waste at these sites outside of operating times as you have a responsibility to ensure all your waste is correctly disposed of. Any such waste found will be treated as illegal dumping.

Dates for all services are available on West Sussex County Council's Mobile Sites pages.
