The waste hierarchy is a way of priortising our management of waste or as we like to think of it; valuable resources. This is the order;

1. Refuse 2. Reduce 3. Reuse 4. Recycle 5. Recover

Before we looking at the top 3 we must make sure that we are doing our best to manage the plastic we have acquired and that means getting good at recycling.

 There are ONLY 3 organisations who can recycle plastics from Brighton and Hove residents. Follow the links IN ORDER and discover how to maximise your plastics recycling. 

  1. Brighton and Hove City Council
  2. Magpie Recycling

  1. Asda - Brighton 
  2. Tescos - Hove
