Did you know that Adur and Worthing Council are committed to ensure they are as environmentally focussed as the rest of us? Would you like to learn more about what they are doing now?

The 154 solar panels installed on the roof of the Portland House building are on course to smash their 40,000 kWh of generated energy by their year one anniversary date of the 7th April 2018.  The energy produced is being used by the Council during working hours and any generated while the offices are shut is being charged back to the grid.

The Waste Teams are working hard with residents to find innovative ways to encourage improved ways of recycling. Why not ask them what you can do with those items you are not sure what to do with? The Recycling Together program is working with local communities and has brought about improved understanding and a community spirit at the same time.

Electric Cars are on their way in and the Council want to help make it easier for us all to transition to them. Come and ask about where the charging posts are, how they work and what’s happening next.

And of course, if you don’t have a car, or would rather use your own steam then the Donkey Bikes are just for you! Come along and learn all about them and how easy it is to move around Worthing.
