Recycling In Sussex logo

Since 2021, staff and volunteers at Seven Sisters have been litter picking once a week for plastics and litter that often comes in with the tide. Now, the litter pickers have teamed up with ReAP, a charity that works to reduce the impact of plastic waste on the planet’s aquatic life and ecosystems. As well as Anglers National Line Recycling Scheme (ANLRS) which recycles lost or littered material.

The partnerships means that around three quarters of the litter collected by staff and volunteers can be recycled. Sussex World reports that this year alone, teams have collected 34kg of plastics. With the new partnership, over 25kg of that waste can now be recycled.

How ReAP works

The charity works with MyRefactorty and takes the litter to its hub in Sussex and turns the litter into re-useable materials which can help to make recycling bins, seating, display boards and outdoor tables.
