West Sussex Initiatives
Changing the way we manage our waste through reducing, re-using and recyclig, is making an important contribution to improving the quality of life in West Sussex. West Sussex County Council (WSCC) and the District and Borough councils work in partnership to offer residents sensible solutions for increasing levels of sustainability. Here are some ways we help.
Home Composting - Waste to Resource
Over 60,000 home composting units have been distributed in West Sussex since 1999 and each year the County promotes a number of Home Compost bins and discount prices. For more information and details of how to obtain a composting unit please contact Marie Bracken tel: 0330 222 7721 or 07850 658 372 email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Food Waste digestion
Do you produce food waste that is not suitable for composting such as cooked meat? Do you have a pet that leaves unpleasent feaces in the garden? The Green Cone and The Green Johanna are composters and food digesters which break down this sort of waste. For more information and details of how to obtain a unit please contact Marie Bracken tel: 0330 222 7721 or 07850 658 372 email: email@example.com
