Household Waste Recycling Sites updateFrom Monday 1 June our sites will be accepting more items, including wood, furniture and electrical items.Social distancing measures are in place at all sites which means a smaller number of people will be allowed in at one time, and could result in long queues.
Supporting schools to safely begin reopeningThe County Council is continuing to work closely with West Sussex schools to support a phased return of pupils in a safe and managed way.The council’s aim is for the phased return to start from 1 June, in line with national guidance.
Schools’ individual risk assessments are identifying how they can best manage this and maintain the safety of their pupils and staff, while continuing to prioritise children who are vulnerable or have key worker parents.
