Edition: Summer 2020
Horsham District residents achieved much improved recycling rates in March 2020, since the start of the coronavirus outbreak.
The quality of the recycling collected has dramatically improved with no recycling loads being rejected for poor quality throughout March, meaning that everything residents have put in their blue-topped bins will be reprocessed into new items.
The Council extends its thanks to all residents who have increased their levels of recycling, despite the difficulties they are facing during these troubling times.
Horsham District already has a very good track record for recycling, so to build upon this is excellent. These recent achievements come after the Horsham District achieved a recycling rate of 53.5% for 2019, exceeding the 50% target that was set for 2020 ahead of time.
These results maintain our position as the best performing district for recycling across the whole of West Sussex and one of the top performers in the UK.
