Charity waste

As a charity, you may be entitled to free refuse and recycling disposal.

We won't collect:

  • construction and demolition waste
  • commercial, industrial or hazardous waste
  • waste generated outside of Adur & Worthing

For regular waste disposal

To apply for your charity to dispose of waste at Burgess Hill, Westhampnett or Crawley Transfer Stations you need to:

First register as a lower-tier waste carrier with GOV.UK. Registration is free and lasts indefinitely. You will then be issued with a waste exemption certificate.

Then, when you've done this, you can register with us to use a Transfer Station. This will need to be renewed annually. All waste brought to a Transfer Station for disposal will be weighed on a vehicle weighbridge. Please email or call us to request a registration form.

For occasional waste disposal

If you're looking for help to dispose of waste produced at occasional events (ie jumble sales), we can issue you with an exemption form so you are able to take it to the tip.

To apply you need to:

First register as a lower-tier waste carrier with GOV.UK. Registration is free and lasts indefinitely. You will then be issued with a waste exemption certificate.

Then, when you've registered with GOV.UK, you can contact us two weeks before the event and we will issue you with an exemption form, valid for the date specified only. Please email or call us to request an exemption form.

Voluntary groups

We may also be able to help some voluntary groups who are not registered as charities with waste disposal and collection. This can include groups who work within local communities and organise beach cleans and litter picking events.

To find out if we can help please contact us in writing at least a month before the event with the details, including event location and the type of waste to be collected.
