Councillors at Lewes District Council joined the team delivering the new recycling wheelie bins this week. Deliveries of 40,000 wheelie bins started last month in East Saltdean, Peacehaven and Telscombe and will continue through to July 2018.

The new bins will replace the old boxes and bags that people use to recycle.

Councillor Paul Franklin, Cabinet Portfolio Holder for Waste & Recycling, explained: “Making recycling simple and easy by having one bin will encourage more people to get involved.

“The range of items that you can put in the bin is also much greater, meaning more can be recycled.”

Before the bins arrive, residents will receive information about what can be recycled in the wheelie bin.
