More on Brighton tip’s opening times and hours

Local residents can visit the Brighton Tip every day of the week, Monday to Sunday. However, it is closed on public holidays, regardless of the day of the week the date falls upon. The recycling site is located off Old Shoreham Road, BN3 7AE, and visitors are advised to check the vehicle restrictions in place before accessing the site.

We would advise you check the council website before visiting, due to unexpected closures. Also try to go when the tip is least busy. You can get an idea of when those times are by checking on Google. 

There are some restrictions in place, so visitors are advised to check the ID requirements and what the banned vehicles and trailers are each site. 

Overview of Brighton Tip

Brighton Tip is one of two household waste recycling sites in the city of Brighton and Hove. Operated by Brighton and Hove City Council, the other one, Hove Tip is located off Old Shoreham Road, BN3 7AE, between Aldrington Avenue and Leighton Road.

Residents can visit Brighton Tip by car. If visitors are in a van or commercial vehicle, they will need photo ID and proof of residency to access the site. Unfortunately, the site is not licensed to accept commercial waste, and unscrupulous traders are not allowed to access the site to tip their business waste for free at the expense of council taxpayers.

Brighton Tip allows visitors to dispose of various items, including general household waste, garden waste, electrical items, scrap metal, car batteries, and more. Visitors can find out what they can and cannot take to Brighton Tip on the Brighton and Hove City Council website.

Visitors to Brighton Tip should also be aware that there may be short delays while containers are emptied during opening hours. Additionally, it is illegal to tip any trade/business waste at the site. Tradesmen, professional gardeners, landlords, and other businesses should take their waste to a licensed commercial waste facility instead and pay for its disposal.

If you are unable to take certain items to Brighton tip or they have an unexpected closure, please consider using the Zero Waste Group rubbish removal service which also includes garden and house clearance services.
