Coronavirus (COVID-19) update: The Council’s household bin collections are currently taking place as normal. We are continuing to monitor the situation, along with government guidance.

The Hop Oast Depot is currently closed to the public. This means customers cannot currently collect a Bulky Bag from the Depot. We are still offering a Bulky Bag delivery service. 

The Household Waste Recycling Sites are run by West Sussex County Council. Please visit the West Sussex County Council website for further details.

Coronavirus (COVID-19): how to dispose of your waste

Waste from households with possible cases of coronavirus (COVID-19), or from cleaning of areas where possible cases have been (including disposable cloths and tissues), should be dealt with as follows:

  • Place all waste in a plastic rubbish bag and tie it when full.
  • The plastic bag should then be placed in a second bin bag and tied.
  • The bag should be put in a suitable and secure place, away from children, for 72 hours
  • After waste has been stored for 72 hours it can be placed in the normal general waste bin

Please do not put your waste in communal waste areas until negative test results are known or the waste has been stored for at least 72 hours.
