Your waste, recycling and garden waste will now be collected by our new contractor, Biffa.
Recycling will be easier! You can now put glass in your green recycling bin or pink sack under the new contract.
You won't need to use your glass recycling box anymore if you have one, just put the glass in the green recycling bin or pink sack. The glass will be separated at the recycling facility and recycled as normal. So it's easier for you and fewer containers to put out.
We will not be collecting your black glass recycling box. We have a list of ideas for how to re-use your box. If you do not wish to keep the box, please dispose of it at your local tip (Hastings Household Waste Recycling Site).
There is also a minor change to what can be recycled. Any food or drink cartons that are plastic or foil lined, often referred to as Tetra Pak, cannot be recycled and will need to be put in your black waste bins or bag. So they can be sent to the Newhaven Energy Recovery Facility.
