West Sussex County Council has reminded householders not to forget to check the bathroom when it comes to recyclable items.
Lionel Barnard, Cabinet Member for Residents Services, said: “It’s easy to forget empty shampoo, shower gel and bubble bath bottles, along with deodorant cans, hair spray cans and glass cosmetic bottles to name a few as well as cardboard toilet roll tubes!
“Don’t forget all of these can go into your recycling bin, but when they do remember to make sure all of your items are clean, dry and loose.”
You can also recycle empty glass perfume bottles and glass cosmetic jars.
