Recycling in Hastings

We recently put forward the following questions to HBC.

QUESTION:

Can you please answer my following questions regarding recycling in Hastings?

1. Why can only plastic numbers 1 to 4 be recycled in Hastings?

2. I can recycle my Tetrapaks in Rother District, but not in Hastings. Why are there no Tetrapak recycling points in Hastings & St Leonards?

3. I was told some time ago that corrugated cardboard can indeed be placed in my green bin. however it says on the leaflet on the top of the bin that i cannot. When will this information be updated?
