On a recent walk in Hailsham, three separate pieces of discarded PPE were seen on one residential street.

Here’s Wealden District Council: “If you were to times that by the number of streets in Wealden, that’s nearly 7,000 face masks and protective gloves littering our district

That’s enough PPE to last one person FORTY years!

To all those people who do dispose of their PPE safely at home, THANK YOU.

To those who don’t, there’s no excuse.

Please take your used items of PPE home with you and bin them responsibly.”
