WEEE recycling goes mobile in the Horsham District - trial extended!

Posted on 24 April 2013

The mobile Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) events trial will continue throughout 2013 in the Chanctonbury area.

Due to the success of the mobile WEEE events, we are pleased to announce that this trial will be extended throughout 2013

Broken or unwanted electrical items – from fridges and freezers to fluorescent tubes and hairdryers – will continue to be collected in the Chanctonbury area until December 2013.

The events will continue in the four parishes of Henfield, Pulborough, Steyning and Storrington.

The scheme is being run by West Sussex County Council in partnership with Viridor and support from Horsham District Council in order to further encourage recycling of small WEEE items and to provide a more localised service in rural communities.

The WEEE service will be able to accept large electrical appliances such as washing machines and cookers; fridges and freezers; display equipment such as TVs; laptops and personal computers; fluorescent tubes and small electrical appliances such as hairdryers and batteries.

For any items that can’t be accepted, the nearest household waste recycling sites are at Hopoast, Worthing Road, Horsham RH13 0AR or at Brighton Road, Shoreham BN43 6RJ.  

Alternatively you can contact Horsham District Council, which offers a chargeable bulky household collection service.

For more details visit www.horsham.gov.uk/environment or telephone 01403 733144.
