Go Green in Henfield & Recycle – SH2030 Recycling Scheme

Unsure how to recycle items that can’t go in your Council recycling bin? Sustainable Henfield 2030‘s plastic recycling scheme is here to help in order to keep Henfield, and our planet, greener through keeping items out of landfill! Many items collected will also be donated to various charities, such as the Henfield Haven, Sussex Homeless Support and Care for Calais Refugees. Additionally, any money received from selling products will be donated to local good causes. Thank you to our local shops and businesses who are participating in this fantastic initiative.
