Household waste and recycling sites (tips) in East Sussex will begin to re-open to the public from 10.00am on Monday the 18th of May.

ESCC expects the sites to be extremely busy and ask residents to only go to them if they have waste that it's absolutely essential to dispose of at this time. If you can compost waste, or safely store it at home for the time being, please do so.

ESCC is following new government guidance on how to keep the public and staff safe at waste sites, including keeping people two metres apart.This means:

- A limited number of unloading bays will be in use

- Only one person at a time will be allowed to use the access ramps

- Staff will not be able to help you unload

- Trailers and over-sized vehicles will not be allowed on site to avoid lengthy visits

- Chargeable waste - plasterboard, asbestos, tyres, hardcore and soil - will not be accepted

- The re-use shops will remain closed
