Recycling in West Sussex

We all need to recycle where possible - and preferably cut down on using stuff in the first place! 

It’s essential when you put your recycling into your recycling bin that it’s:

  • Clean and free from food and drink leftovers 
  • Dry – you need to keep your recycling bin lid shut
  • Loose – no plastic bags!

Ways to help the recycling cause are:

  1. Think before you use it – do you really need it?  Is there an alternative which saves on waste or the need to recycle at all?
  2. Compost kitchen waste and use it on the garden 
  3. Cut back on food waste – look at what you’re throwing away each week and ask yourself where the waste is coming from – are you buying too much in the first place?  Planning meals can help reduce waste and save you money.   Better still, grow your own fruit & veg!
In short, Think before you throw!
