Household Waste Recycling Site Service Consultation – Now Live – Please see message

Dear stakeholder,


I am writing to let you know that the 12-week public consultation on our Household Waste Recycling Site Service has now started and ends at midnight on 15 May. The online survey is now live on the Consultation Hub.


Links to the survey, as well as FAQs and the full Service Review, are available here on our website.


We are consulting on these proposals:


  • The introduction of charging for certain waste types that are not ‘household waste’ (i.e. rubble, soil, plasterboard, tyres and asbestos) at the Household Waste Recycling Sites
  • The possible closure of the part-time recycling sites at Forest Row and Wadhurst
  • A review of recycling site opening hours against demand for the service


We would like to hear from anyone in East Sussex with an interest in the recycling sites, particularly if they feel they would be affected by our proposals.


If you don’t feel it is appropriate for you to complete the consultation survey, but you have comments on the proposals and the consultation, please let us have your feedback by email before the consultation period ends.


After the consultation has ended, the views people share with us will be analysed and presented to East Sussex County Council’s Cabinet later this year to help the Members make a final decision on what happens to the service.


If you have any questions, please let me know.


Yours sincerely,

Rupert Clubb
