In our rural areas Council has set up a Green Bin recycling scheme. This works with the assistance of members of the communities who advise when the bins require emptying.
All household recycling – paper, cardboard, plastics 1, 2 & 5, cans and colour-sorted glass can be dropped off at the sites.
Planning for rural recycle stations started in 2012, to help rural residents move away from disposing rubbish on their farms. Hastings District Council's waste team identified appropriate rural sites, a design for the recycling facilities and a way of managing collection in far-flung areas.
We have six rural recycling stations across our district. These are all seven days a week and unfenced.
Clean and flattened paper and cardboard.
