♬♫♪ We’ve got a Brand New Sussex Green Living Terracycle drop-off location in Southwater!* ♬♫♪
Here in West Sussex we’re very fortunate in that West Sussex County Council take a wide variety of materials in our kerbside bins for recycling. At present, however, there are a number of things they can’t yet take that can be recycled. This can be frustrating for those of us who are keen recyclers. A group of those frustrated parties, including Sussex Green Living, Southwater Church, Southwater Beavers and Southwater Scouts, (to name but a few), have got together with Terracycle to tackle some of this waste-that-isn’t-waste. In addition to the clothes bank already there, Southwater Church now has two more recycling collection bins up by the Church Rooms on Church Lane.
The first bin is for crisp & snack packets only – all brands and all sizes.
The second bin is for
• Ballpoint pens, felt tips, biros, correction fluid, markers, glue sticks and highlighters
• Plastic wrapping for; sweet biscuits, cakes, crackers, chocolate, popcorn & nuts
• Fruit & Vegetable baby food pouches – Ella’s Kitchen and other brands (no pet food pouches please!)
• Plastic Milk Bottle Tops
• All other plastic container tops (metal lids can be recycled in kerbside Blue Bins)
• Plastic Air fresheners: cartridges and packaging
• Inkjet Cartridges
• Toothpaste tubes & caps, toothbrushes, heads from electric and battery toothbrushes
• Personal care & beauty products including: trigger heads & pumps, plastic tubes roll-on deodorants (Glass roll-ons can be recycled in kerbside Blue Bins)
• Home cleaning products: plastic bottle caps, trigger heads & pumps, cleaning wipe packaging
• Re-sealable packaging for cheese, dishwasher and washing machine tablets
All the usual suspects such as tins, plastic and glass bottles, etc. can go in your normal kerbside recycling.
