Household Waste Recycling Sites

Closed 31 May 2021

Opened 6 Apr 2021


Why we are consulting

There are two Household Waste Recycling Sites (HWRS) in Brighton & Hove; one on Wilson Avenue and one leading off Old Shoreham Road. They are operated by Veolia on behalf of the council.

Both sites currently accept more than 30 different types of materials. This includes recycling and household items, electrical items and garden waste.

We are seeking your views on proposals to make some changes at the HWRS.

Proposal 1: To introduce charges for some types of non-household waste, such as soil, hardcore, plasterboard, bonded asbestos and tyres.

Why: To save the council and our taxpayers money

Proposal 2: To introduce ID checks

Why: To save the council and our taxpayers money and ensure only residents of the city use our recycling sites

How to take part in this consultation: You will find more information on both proposals as you progress through the consultation portal.

Fill in the following survey by midnight on 31 May 2021 – we expect it to take around 10 minutes to complete.

We’d like to hear from any residents of Brighton & Hove, whether you’re a regular user of our recycling sites or not. We also welcome feedback from charitable or community organisations with an interest in the service.

What happens next?

At this stage, no decisions have been made on our proposals.

Once the consultation is complete, your views will be presented to the council’s Environment, Transport & Sustainability Committee to help them make a final decision.
