At our February meeting, one of our members came forward to say that she’d take items for recycling from members that are usually not recycled by councils but are recycled by a specialist provider, Terracycle UK.
See the form below for what she is able to take off your hands at our monthly meetings.
Thank you very much, Pam! What a great idea 🙂
Items Not Normally Recycled by Councils
Terracycle UK recycle items which are not normally recycled by local councils, so usually go to landfill or incineration. There are several schemes, each funded by big companies so they are VERY SPECIFIC about what they take. If unsure, please check at the relevant Terracycle scheme link in the table below.
