Funding for Recycling Credits

The County Council must increase recycling and reduce the amount of residual waste. In order to increase the recycling rate the Council needs, together with district and borough partners, to work differently to make sure as much as possible is removed from the waste stream. By changing the way recycling services are funded, the aim is to drive change in the amount and variety of material collected for recycling. The County Council is working closely with district and borough partners to ensure this change has the desired effect and works towards a cleaner, greener, West Sussex.
