Some important advice on recycling from Viridor and West Sussex County Council below…
We want to be sure there are secure end-use markets available for the plastic bottles and containers we collect, preferably in the UK, and that we can be certain they will be recycled.
In West Sussex we have access to specialised sorting facilities that are able to sort plastic bottles, pots, tubs and trays for recycling.
Black plastic collected for recycling from the kerbside in West Sussex is processed through the Plastics Recycling Facility and will be used in new packaging for M&S, Sainsbury’s and Tesco products in partnership with food packaging manufacturer Faerch Plast.
Even though you may hear about what is acceptable and not acceptable to recycle in the national press, always refer to local guidance as this will be the most up to date and correct information.
