Why recycling is great

Some 41.5% of our average waste bin is made up of food waste.  However, up to 70% of that waste can be avoided.

By finding ways to reduce our food waste, composting, or sharing our surplus food, we can save money, save the environment, and support our communities too.

Go greener at home

If you missed out on the competition, Horsham District residents can still purchase a HOTBIN with a 10% discount, or bag a discounted compost bin through West Sussex County Council.
