Nusrat Ghani, MP for Wealden, is supporting this year’s Recycle Week and encourages Wealden residents to increase their recycling efforts. Her constituency includes Crowborough, Uckfield, Mayfield and Hailsham.
Recycle Week started on Monday, September 20 and runs until Saturday, September 26. Latest research from Recycle Now reveals that almost nine out of ten people now recycle.
However, 55 per cent of households put various items that can be recycled, such as shampoo bottles, cleaning bottles and foil in the general rubbish bin. The aim of this year’s campaign is to encourage people to improve their recycling habits and recycle better.

Nusrat Ghani said: "Looking after our environment is one of the most important issues in Wealden. I have been campaigning against the closures of some of Wealden’s recycling centres as they play a key role in ensuring that Wealden residents do their bit to protect the environment.
"I’m pleased that the data for 2020/21 in Wealden shows that the percentage of dry recycling material collected in the district has increased and I’d like to thank all Wealden residents who dispose of their waste safely and considerately.”
