Electrical recycling initiative sparks into life

Broken or unwanted electrical items will be handed over for recycling in Henfield, Pulborough, Steyning and Storrington.

West Sussex County Council is running the trial scheme in partnership with Viridor and Horsham District Council. Funding for the pilot has come from the manufacturers and retailers of electrical and electronic waste, who are legally required to fund recycling.

Washing machines, cookers, fridges, freezers, televisions, computers, fluorescent tubes, hairdryers and batteries are among items that will be accepted on eight days between September and April.

The initiative will start in the car park at High Street, Henfield, on Sunday before moving to the car parks at Lower Street, Pulborough, on October 20, Church Street, Steyning, on November 18 and Storrington library on December 29 (all 10am to 3pm).

Cllr Lionel Barnard, deputy leader of the county council, said: “Our experience in Selsey has demonstrated that this service works and is valued. We are confident that people will want to take advantage of the service in the Chanctonbury area.”
