Recycling in Lancing logo


Hello and Welcome,

The main purpose of the Recycling in Lancing Project to reduce what goes into landfill and as a bonus, raise money for local organisations and charities in the Adur and Worthing District.

Despite the Adur and Worthing Councils doing a fantastic job on recycling in the area, there are some things that are not viable for them to recycle.

Through an international company with a base in the UK Terracycle, we are able to recycle unusual household items that most people would not think twice about throwing away.

TerraCycle currently engages with more than 35 million people in 23 countries, to collect non-recyclable waste.  TerraCycle then turns the collected waste into a wide variety of products and materials.

The fact that only charities/youth groups/local good causes can get the funds is a great motivation.


We are no longer able to take Coffee pod – both Tassimo and Nespresso, as this scheme is now closed.  There is some good news in that the manufacturers have joined together and use a Pod Recycling Service to collect and recycle their pods.   To find out more about Podback please Follow This LINK

We are no longer able to take Dog and Cat Food Pouches.  This waste stream is now closed.  The good news is that you can take your pouched to either the Co-op or Tesco’s who are running schemes that take this and other soft plastics.  Thank you to everyone who support this waste stream and managed to raise much needed cash for good local causes.

It would appear Morrisons don’t take pet food pouches but they do take a range of other plastics to find out more Follow This Link

It appears ASDA stores don’t take any recyclable material from its customers (apart from used batteries).  There is a lot of work going on in the background with a lot of writing.   Follow This Link
