It don’t matter if you’re black or white

Posted on 4 July 2018

We’re really pleased to confirm that in West Sussex black plastic CAN go into your kerbside recycling bin – despite what you may have heard nationally.

But the good news doesn’t stop there. Our partner Viridor has launched a scheme with three UK supermarkets to use recycled black plastics in new food grade packaging. This is awesome and we hope it will lead to more recycling across the country.

Please help us by making sure you put all of your plastic bottles, pots, tubs, and trays in the recycling bin – it doesn’t matter what colour they are - just make sure they are clean, dry, and loose.

You can pick up some more advice on what can and can’t be recycled in the latest edition of West Sussex Connections (see page nine).
