Edition: Summer 2021
Did you know that over 800 tonnes of textiles and 130 tonnes of small electricals are thrown away in rubbish bins in the Horsham District every year? We’re trialling two new recycling collection services to try and cut these numbers.
Book a free textiles and electricals collection
Got unwanted textiles and broken electricals? Book a free collection and we’ll take them away.
Just about everything with a plug, battery or cable has the potential to be recycled these days, and our recycling collection trial makes it easier than ever to get rid of your items responsibly.
Kettles, toasters, irons, hairdryers, radios, electronic toys, power tools and many more small electricals can now be recycled using our easy new booking service. We can also take clothes, shoes, towels and other unwanted textiles in the same collection.
We'll take your batteries too
Just leave them out on bin day.
We can now also offer kerbside collection for recycling batteries on your regular bin collection day.
All you need to do is place your batteries in a small, clear plastic bag and place the bag on top of your green-top rubbish bin or blue-top recycling bin on your usual collection day.
To ensure minimal use of plastic bags, please ensure you store batteries until you have enough to fill a sandwich bag and have it securely closed.
Please do not place one or two batteries out for collection as there is a risk the bag could blow away.
Please do not place batteries inside your recycling or rubbish bin.
