West Sussex Waste Partnership

The West Sussex Waste Partnership (WSCC and HDC) have provided more information on their recycling efforts. Please see below.


Last year all our residents helped the County to reuse or recycle over 200,000 tonnes of waste! This campaign asks us to continue to ‘Think Before You Throw’ and recycle as much as we can. This includes materials such as black plastic pots, tubs and trays, empty aerosols, as well as other items that can go in special collections at home such as textiles, small electricals and coffee pods.

In a recent survey 48% of West Sussex respondents admitted to throwing items in the general waste bin because they were unsure if they could be recycled or not, so a NEW animation series has now been produced to help reduce even further the items going to waste. These short films explain what items can and can’t be recycled in West Sussex as well as showing what happens after your bin is collected and how recycling and waste is processed.

Remember recycling should be:

  • CLEAN - free from food and drink leftovers - a quick rinse will often do.
  • DRY - keep your recycling bin lid shut – soggy paper and cardboard can’t be recycled and can stick to other items or clog up machinery when sorted.
  • LOOSE – not tied up in plastic bags, as the machinery cannot sort these.
