Recycling

We are passionate about recycling, it is not the answer to today's plastic pollution, and the effect it is having on our Oceans, wildlife and our own health, but we are supporting work to keep unwanted plastics out of the environment.

We have been awarded funding from the Safer Communities CIC in Stafford to help us improve facilities for our community.

Currently we accept the following items:

  • Crisp Packets
  • Pringles and other crisp tubes
  • Oral care products (toothbrushes, toothpaste tubes and cartons)
  • Pet food pouches and treat bags
  • Chocolate wrappers
  • Biscuit and cake wrappers
  • Ella's kitchen and other baby food pouches
  • Cracker wrappers
  • Pens and felt pens
  • Batteries

With the help of volunteers, we sort and pack these items and send them to Terracycle to be processed, where they are then turned into new items, such as children's playground flooring or park benches. Some of the items we collect raise money for charities - our chosen charity is Childhood Cancer Parents Alliance (CCPA)

We also collect used stamps to raise moeny for Motor Neurone Disease Awareness.
