New coffee pod recycling collections for Horsham District

A new coffee pod recycling scheme for residents will be introduced alongside the Council’s already very successful new initiatives to increase recycling collections from residents' kerbsides.

The new coffee pod service will help support the Council’s aim to reduce waste, increase recycling and achieve carbon savings to help tackle climate change. It is the latest in a series of our innovative recycling initiatives, including the kerbside weekly collection of batteries, textiles and small electrical items, and a recent food waste collection trial.

Local processing plant reduces landfill waste

Cllr Toni Bradnum at local recycling treatment facilityOur Recycling and Waste Cabinet Member, Cllr Toni Bradnum (pictured), visited the Langhurstwood Road site in Horsham recently to learn more about this cutting-edge Mechanical and Biological Treatment plant that processes over 310,000 tonnes of waste per year.

Full of high-tech equipment the site separates everything we throw in our household waste bins, from paper bags to food waste and virtually all of life's rubbish. Even street sweepings are re-used.

Recent statistics reveal that the site in Horsham has reduced landfill waste to just 9% in the last three years from just under 30% in 2018/19.
