Recycling single use plastic

Green Consumer, Info

Hang on to your recycling. 
Greeting Steyning won’t have a stand at March’s Farmers Market due to Covid restrictions.  So hold on to those hard-to-recycle items you’ve been collecting until we’re up and running again.  Recycling drop-offs are still open in Lancing* and Horsham but only if you are travelling there anyway for essential reasons. Here’s a link to an updated flyer of what can and can’t be recycled. 

We are affiliated with Sussex Green Living. The main purpose of the recycling scheme is about diverting the materials from incineration in Europe to a recycling scheme. Sussex Green Living do receive a little money, but it takes a lot of work! The proceeds twice a year are redeemed between the William Penn School (who have accommodated this scheme since 2012), Sussex Green Living and the Kent, Surrey and Sussex Air Ambulance, 1/3rd to each.


Council bin collections are operating as normal so please remember to recycle any plastics, papers, glass, cans, aerosols, cartons and foil etc. through the normal channels.

* If you’re travelling to Horsham take them to Sussex Green Living’s main drop off location at the Quaker Meeting House, Worthing Road, RH12 1SL. Further information or where you can learn about other village drop off locations in Horsham District. 
Or to Lancing to ‘Douglas’ 34 Firle Road, BN15 0NZ. Further info here or
