Recycling Waste & News

Myth busting: Can I recycle my old electrical items?

Yes you can!

Anything in your home or garden with a plug or battery can be taken to your local Household Waste Recycling Site and put in the electrical waste container to be recycled.

Did you know for example that there is enough steel in an iron to produce 13 baked bean cans? Or that a toaster could come back as a laptop!

All household electrical equipment can be broken down and recycled into new things. There's space at the HWRS's for light bulbs, batteries and larger appliances too.

For more information about what you can and can't recycle, visit our Think Before You Throw webpages.

Come along to the Kinder Tech event!

Don’t bin your old, slow or broken tech. Bring it along to the Kinder Tech event organised by Kinder Living on Saturday 3 March at Parkside, Chart Way, Horsham.

A team of experts will be on hand to diagnose problems, fix software issues and discuss solutions. If spare parts are needed, they’ll give you an idea of cost, so you can decide if it's right for you.

Did you know...

...that a bottle of wine was unearthed from a Roman nobleman's tomb dating back to 350 AD, but evidence of man made glass dates back as far as 4000 BC! 

Glass is everlasting but can be recycled again and again, without loss of quality. Recycle all your glass bottles and jars in your blue-topped recycling bin, at your local Household Waste Recycling Site (HWRS) or glass banks.
