See details of proposed reduction of frequency of bin collections here.

In response to today’s announcements on proposed changes to the bin collection service, Councillor Rebecca Cooper, Leader of the Labour Group for Worthing Borough Council, stated:

“We have been calling for a review of waste collection services for some time now, so we are pleased that the Conservative administration are finally considering alternative proposals to help increase our recycling rate across Worthing and Adur. These proposed changes have a cost saving element, but it is important that they comprehensively assist our local population in their own efforts to recycle. We will be scrutinising these proposals as they come forward, to ensure that they have fully considered the requirements of our local population with regard to bin size and clear and simple information on what can and cannot be recycled.

Furthermore, we would like to see the introduction of food recycling collection, to continue to improve our recycling capability and to ensure that we do not attract any unwanted issues with rodents. Many residents of Worthing are unable to compost, as they do not have a garden space, and this therefore needs to be considered as we seek to maximise recycling in our area.”

Councillor Cooper also noted that: “This announcement is part of a wider environmental framework for the area that includes reducing the use of single use plastic in our towns and communities. The October meeting of Worthing’s Full Council will receive a petition signed by 1000 local residents in support of Worthing becoming a plastic free town. This is an excellent opportunity for Worthing Council to work in partnership with local businesses and communities to protect and preserve our beautiful area for future generations to enjoy.”
