Recycling In Sussex logo

Today is possibly one of our favourite days of the year – Global Recycling Day! A day to really consider our recycling efforts and whether we think we’re doing enough to avoid items going into landfill. Of course, there are other ways you can take part in today, here are out tips:

  1. Educate and Spread Awareness: Knowledge is a powerful tool. Use Global Recycling Day as an opportunity to educate yourself and others about the importance of recycling. Share information through social media, organise awareness campaigns, or host virtual events to reach a wider audience.
  2. Improve Recycling Habits: Evaluate and enhance your recycling habits. Learn about what can and cannot be recycled in your local area, and ensure proper sorting of materials. Encourage your community to participate in recycling initiatives, making it a collective effort.
  3. Support Recycling Initiatives: Get involved with local recycling programs or initiatives. Attend community clean-up events, participate in recycling drives, or support businesses that prioritise sustainable and eco-friendly practices. Advocate for improved recycling infrastructure in your area.
  4. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle: Embrace the mantra of “reduce, reuse, recycle.” Minimise waste by making conscious choices about consumption. Reuse items when possible, and recycle responsibly. Choose products with minimal packaging and those made from recycled materials.

Global Recycling Day is a reminder that individual actions collectively contribute to a global impact. This website was set up by a group of volunteers who saw the need for a central hub of recycling information for everyone in Sussex. It not only covers what the council will recycle in East and West Sussex, but also the recycling initiatives in towns in Sussex.

To find out what recycling opportunities are available in your town, use the menu at the top of the website. Also, if you know of a great recycling initiative in your area, please let us know so that we can add it to the website.
