Non-council collectors in your area

Thankfully, there are a few different collection point in Eastbourne where you can recycle items that would usually go into landfill. The Defiant Sports Inclusion Hub is a collector of certain items which are then recycled through Terracycle. A recycling company that allows collectors, like Defiant Sports, to send them items to be recycled in exchange for points.

The points are rewarded based on how heavy each category of waste is which can then be exchanged for cash. In most cases, collectors choose to donate the money to charity.

Find out which laundry products and which Lavazza coffee pods they are able to accept.

St Andrew’s Church also collect for Terracycle. Find out what they accept here.
