It's our aim to recycle as much of what the council does not collect as possible.
We have various means of recycling; from personally delivering your Tetrapak items (ie, juice cartons) to the local household recycling centre, we're also a part of numerous Terracycle schemes, from Colgate, to Ellacycle. And we personally re-use, re-make or responsibly dispose of what would usually be sent overseas, or worse still, dumped in our oceans or landfill.
Recycling is the simple thing that makes a huge impact to our oceans, wildlife and ourselves. You can make a difference by making one small change - let us help you recycle effectively.
The types of plastic we can take:
All you need to do is fill in this Booking Form and one of our team will contact you to arrange a pick-up day and frequency. All you need to do is put the recycling in a white or clear plastic bag on the collection day.
Alternatively, why not buy a KERBSIDE PACK for detailed instructions for how to use the service!!!!
What happens to the recycling we collect?
We make new products with the recycled materials, which are available on our shop. We are also looking to open an education centre where you can bring your children along to see the process and make something new!!
Any excess, we pass onto a recycling company, where 100% off the items are recycled into new products or to make renewable energy. Nothing will go to lanfill or into the oceans.
Is there any plastic you can’t recycle?
If we collect any plastic which can’t be recycled then it will be sent for incineration so that it doesn’t end up in landfill.
So, there you have it, you can do your bit for the environment by letting us have your recycling. Simply fill in the contact form and a member of our recycling team will get in touch.
