Recycling at home in West Sussex

All of the dry mixed recyclables collected from the kerbside in West Sussex are processed through the County Council’s recycling and waste handling contract with Biffa.

All the districts in West Sussex collect dry mixed recycling fortnightly from your home. The recyclable materials are taken to our Ford Materials Recycling Facility (MRF) near Arundel where they are sorted and separated for recycling.
