Visitors Encouraged to Recycle at Airbourne

Eastbourne company Haulaway Ltd is teaming up with the organisers of Airbourne: Eastbourne International Airshow to encourage visitors to recycle their rubbish during the free four day event this week.Taking place from tomorrow, Thursday 11th – Sunday 14th August, Airbourne attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors and this year is stepping up its recycling efforts by introducing Haulaway Ltd’s new wheelie bins throughout the site.

Haulaway Ltd has dedicated 27 brand new wheelie bins ranging from 1100ltr to 660ltr to be placed around the Airbourne site to encourage visitors to recycle their glass and cardboard. All waste streams will then be brought back to Haulaway Ltd’s Transfer Station in nearby Hailsham where it will be segregated into its recycled commodities.

Eastbourne Borough Council Cabinet Member for Tourism and Leisure Cllr Neil Stanley said “We are very pleased to be working alongside Haulaway Ltd at Airbourne this year to make it as easy as possible for visitors to recycle their waste. Bins will be located close to all of the catering units and I really want to urge visitors to make the most of the recycling facilities available.

The Council’s Waste Awareness Team will be on site at Airbourne this year with an informative stand to tell visitors about all things recycling. Visitors and residents will be able to find out how much is recycled in the town and exactly what happens to it.

Airbourne opens at 10am this Thursday and promises a packed four days of thrilling flying, arena displays, evening concerts and a firework finale. The Red Arrows will be displaying on Friday, Saturday and Sunday alongside a bumper programme of RAF, Royal Navy, and civilian displays.
