Issue details

East Sussex County Council Household Waste Recycling Sites - waste acceptance policy relating to use of vans and cash payments for non-household waste

Following the Covid-19 shutdown of the HWRS network in 2020, sites reopened with slightly amended changes to access arrangements for vans and how Non-Household Waste deposits can be charged for. In order to improve the throughput at sites, Vans were (and continue to be) restricted to 3 days per weeks and electronic only payment was introduced for non-household waste in order to reduce contact between residents and site staff. Lead Member is asked to consider these two aspects of HWRS usage and consider if they would like to revert to the pre-Covid-19 shutdown policies or adopt the new policies.
