Rother District Council has a new waste, recycling and street cleansing contractor. Biffa, the new operator, starts work on June 29 and will do things a little differently. Your collection days will stay the same but recycling just got a bit easier. Under the new contract, recycled glass should not go in a separate container – put it together with your other recyclables in the recycling bin or pink sack. The glass will be separated at the recycling facility and recycled as normal. Your old box for glass will not be collected – keep it and re-use it for something else! Also put Tetra Pak cartons (used for things like long-life milk, juice, soup etc) in your household waste bin. Tetra Pak can no longer be recycled in this area so instead will be sent to Newhaven Energy Recover facility with the rest of our household waste. See here for an update on Rother’s recycling policies.
