Ellisfield Recycling Initiative

Ellisfield (‘The Green Village’)

We in Ellisfield aim to live up to the above description, both from a scenic and environmentally friendly viewpoint.

There are a number of recycling initiatives in place in the village; organised by residents who spare the time to collate and recycle items which cannot be included in the green wheelie bin.  The list is provided below - do please consider using these facilities and help to reduce the amount going to incineration and so improve the environment.
