Using our household waste recycling sites – site rules and policies


Items for sale in re-use shops

Most of our recycling sites have ‘re-use shops’ where preloved items are sold at a low-cost instead of being thrown away. If you want to buy or donate something, please ask the site staff. Opening hours vary at different sites.

The following shops accept card payment only: Crowborough, Lewes, Maresfield, and Seaford.

The following shops accept cash only:  Eastbourne, Hailsham, Hastings, Heathfield, Mountfield, and Newhaven (and card).

The shops are managed by site staff in agreement with Trading Standards. All payments for items go to the site manager and proceeds go towards the running of our recycling sites. All sales are recorded for tax purposes and you should be offered a receipt for anything you buy.

Soil conditioner, made from green garden waste collected at the household waste recycling sites and from the kerbside collection schemes, is also available to buy at the sites.
