Recycling – doing more!

In light of checks showing that more than 50% of what is being put in green-top household waste bins could actually be recycled, HDC have issued this request.

Please help us to recycle more

We need to reach the national recycling target of 50% by 2020

Here in the Horsham District we currently recycle 44% of our waste. We are proud to say that this is highest in West Sussex. However we need to reach the national recycling target of 50% by 2020. With your help we know that we can.

Recent research has shown that 20% of what we currently throw away in our green-top (household waste) bins can be put into our blue-top recycling bin.

In total a staggering 57% of the waste that we currently throw away can be reduced, reused or recycled!

Please make sure your blue-top (recycling) bin only contains items that can be recycled and that the items are clean, dry, and loose.

Only recycling put inside your bin will be collected.  Please close the lid. Thank you.
