Waste Team


Our household waste recycling sites (‘tips’) have reopened. However, with social distancing necessary, the service is restricted, there may be queues, and you should only travel to a site if absolutely necessary. See Coronavirus – rubbish and recycling in East Sussex.

Mountfield Household Waste Recycling Site - due to road traffic works on the A2100 between 29 June to 29 July, the site can only be accessed from the south/Battle direction.

We manage and arrange the disposal of waste and recycling collected by the five borough and district councils in the county. We provide household waste recycling sites where householders can dispose of and recycle household waste. We monitor some former closed landfill sites in the county.

Please contact your Borough or District Council for all enquiries about your refuse and recycling collection service.
