West Sussex County Council Recycling Centre booking system

We would like to inform you that from Monday 12th February, West Sussex residents will need to pre-book a timed slot to visit one of the 11 permanent West Sussex Recycling Centres. Slots can be booked on the same day or up to 14 days in advance, and are for either 15 or 30 minutes, depending on the site chosen.

The system has been in place at Bognor Regis, Crawley, Horsham, Littlehampton, Shoreham-By-Sea, and Worthing since 2021. The performance of the scheme was reviewed as part of the decision-making process for the extension. It showed that most sites with the scheme in place were diverting more materials to recycling, reducing the overall amount of waste being processed, and making the sites more efficient. Additionally, a recent customer satisfaction survey found that 96% of those asked, who have used the system, thought that it was either ‘excellent’ or ‘good.’

The booking system also ensures a steady flow of residents can access our Recycling Centres without the inconvenience of having to queue at peak times. More information can be found on our website We have also attached a copy of the postcard being handed out to residents at Recycling Centres, for your information.
