Love to reduce, reuse, recycle this Valentines!

Veolia Environmental Services in South Downs are encouraging residents in East Sussex and Brighton & Hove to love the 3Rs this Valentines – reduce, reuse, recycle by making sure that you recycle any waste produced from romantic celebrations.

Veolia’s Environmental Services top tips for a green Valentines are:

  • REDUCE - Reduce the amount of waste you create by using a reusable gift bag for that romantic present
  • REUSE - Get creative and make a Valentines Day card out of reused materials or a bouquet of roses out of old plastic bags 
  • RECYCLE - Valentines cards, wrapping paper and cardboard packaging can all be recycled from home

Martin Benson, Household Waste Recycling Sites Manager at Veolia says: “Our aim is to encourage everyone in the county and city to do their bit and love their local environment.  Valentines Day is a time for roses and romance and a great opportunity to reduce, reuse and recycle too all of which you can do at your local Household Waste Recycling Site!”
East Sussex and Brighton & Hove residents can show their love for the environment by recycling at your local Household Waste Recycling Site.
