If you can’t find where to recycle your items then there is a detailed A-Z of how to recycling materials produced by West Sussex County Council.

What about other single use plastic packaging?

Large producers have to recycle 60% plus of their packaging and so will pay charities for collecting the items below. If you collected up these items and bring them to the monthly Steyning farmer’s market, we will have wheelie bins for them. Any monies received from producers are donated to the local schools and charities.

If you can’t reach the Steyning Farmers Market then there are other local shops or voluntary organisations who collect recyclable items:
