Recycling Centres to accept hard plastic

 Hard plastic items, such as garden furniture, coat hangers and plastic piping can now be accepted at most West Sussex Recycling Centres.

Following a successful trial that started in February, around 70 tonnes were collected each month.

 Some items are separated for re-use, while the remainder are broken down to pellet form, to make new plastic components.

Staff at the centres will be able to direct residents to the new collection bins.
