Thank you for being the best recyclers in West Sussex!
We’d like to say thank you to the residents of Horsham for all your hard work keeping Horsham at the top of the West Sussex recycling tables.
Did you know that we recycle 53.5% of our waste - the highest in West Sussex by a whole 9%? Horsham also ranks at 50 out of 338 local authorities in the country, which is a brilliant achievement. But there’s always more to be done.
The list of items that can be recycled at home has now grown to include things you may not be aware of, such as takeaway coffee cups (but not polystyrene cups) and plastic bottle tops. It also includes trigger sprays, Tetra Pak, carton and milk bottle plastic lids.
Horsham’s Recycling Centre at Hop Oast can now accept hard plastic items such as garden furniture, coat hangers and plastic children's toys. Items are separated for re-use, while the remainder are broken down to pellet form, to make new plastic components.
