Eastbourne recycling centre to close

A recycling centre in Eastbourne is set to close at the end of this month.

Wednesday, 12th May 2021, 11:35 am

The facility in Waitrose Car Park in Old Town is managed by Eastbourne council’s Environment First.

People can take mixed recycling including glass, plastic and cardboard to the site and empty it into designated bins there.

A notice posted at the site says the site will close on May 31.


The council says it has taken the decision as contractors are clearing more rubbish, fly-tipping and commercial waste from the bins than good quality recycling.
