Oil - Cooking

RECYCLE

Cooking oil can be recycled.

There are several local schemes.

Please take your old oil to The Green Centre where it will be recycled and used to support vehicles operated by Magpie and buses operated by The Big Lemon.The centre accepts the  following waste vegetable oils; maize, olive, palm, rapeseed, sSoya, sunflower, safflower, sesame, almond, coconut, groundnut, peanut and walnut oil. Do not worry about small particles of food matter left in the oil - this will be sieved out. However the scheme won't accept oil contaminated with animal fat.

Please save your oil in a screw top plastic bottle no larger than 2 litres. We are not able to accept, and sorry but no glass bottles or flip top lids .I'm afraid.

Alternatively take your oil to either the Brighton or Hove recycling sites. See Recycling Sites for locations and opening times.

The Brighton Slick School scheme operated by Magpie will accept same oils as listed above.

Slick schools include;

Hertford Infant School, Hertford Rd, Hollingdean, Brighton open their Slick Bin for just a couple of hours every half-term. Call 01273 552931 for more details.

Somerhill School, Somerhill Rd, Hove have not confirmed their Slick Bin opening times so please call 01273 739659 for details.

Old British Currency

Old British Currency can be useful.

Please bring them to the Green Centre even if you only have a few coins. We will add them to an on-going collection and send them to Survival, an organisation supporting tribal people throughout the world to defend their land.

We can also accept foreign currency still in circulation as well as out of circulation.

There is currently £540 million worth of foreign currency spread around the world.
