Council urges ‘get recycling’

A CAMPAIGN aimed at increasing recycling rates throughout Hastings and St Leonards is being launched this week.

Hastings Borough Council (HBC) is kick-starting the drive with the unveiling of three new recycling sites in the Tilebarn area of Hollington on Monday.

Councillor Phil Scott, head of the environment team at HBC said: “We’re trying to encourage residents to recycle more, while recycling the right items, by making facilities accessible and convenient for them.”

During the week, the council’s waste team will be in the area holding road shows, talking to residents, answering questions and providing advice.
