Stay home, Protect the NHS, Save Lives

Stay Home message

Coronavirus cases in Mid Sussex are currently very high, particularly in East Grinstead, Copthorne and Turners Hill in the north of the District. The single most important action we can all take is to stay at home to protect the NHS and save lives.

Around 1 in 3 people with coronavirus don’t show symptoms, but they can still pass it on.
Unnecessary social contact puts you and others at risk of serious disease. So now, more than ever, it's important to stay at home.

You can leave home to exercise on your own, with your household (or support bubble) or one other person, but this should be limited to once per day, and you should not travel outside your local area.

Please follow the rules and together we can #KeepWestSussexSafe

Household Waste Recycling Sites (HWRSs) across West Sussex remain open, but to keep themselves and key workers safe, people should avoid travel to the sites unless waste cannot be safely stored or put out for normal kerbside collection.  

All sites are open to their regular winter hours, visit for more details.

Social distancing measures remain in place across all sites.

West Sussex County Council will continue to update residents via their social media channels, search for West Sussex Recycles on Facebook, or WSRecycles on Twitter and Instagram.
