Recycling for Charity
Sussex Green Living have set up various recycling schemes which divert waste resources, mainly single-use plastics, from landfill and into the circular economy. Money raised from collecting these materials financially benefits charities and not-for-profit organisations.
The most important thing is that we upcycle or recycle these materials rather than put them in landfill or incinerators. Many of these materials are likely to take hundreds if not thousands of years to biodegrade into something we might ever be able to use again.
We work with a number of charities which recycle waste items that the council can’t usually take like ink cartridges, textiles, milk bottle tops and ring pulls.
