The Prime Minster has praised West Sussex County Council for its achievements in recycling rates.

Figures released by West Sussex Council County in September 2020 show that 53% of items thrown away are now recycled. On average West Sussex households have managed to reduce their general waste by 30kg compared to the previous year.

Following a question from Arundel and South Downs MP Andrew Griffith in the House of Commons, Mr Johnson acknowledged the council’s achievement.
