Rother Council to give residents a recycling reminder


People in Rother will receive a sticker to remind them of what they can recycle at home.

The sticker is being sent out to residents across the district from next week, along with their annual calendar showing waste and recycling collection dates for the Christmas period and the year ahead. People are encouraged to attach the sticker to their recycling container as a reminder of what can be recycled.

Across East Sussex, 42 per cent of waste is recycled, but around a quarter of what’s thrown in people’s rubbish bins could still be recycled.

People can help by remembering to recycle all their plastic bottles; plastic pots, tubs and trays; paper and card; foil and cans and food and drink cartons – and by keeping recycling clean, empty, squashed and unbagged.

A Rother District Council spokesman said: “People in Rother do a fantastic job of recycling their waste but we can always do more.

“By recycling more of their rubbish, residents can help us to reduce the amount of waste that is burnt to create energy or goes to landfill, further reducing our carbon footprint.

“By attaching the sticker they will receive to their recycling containers, hopefully it will act as a reminder as to what can be put in them and will encourage people to recycle even more.”
