We are pleased to announce our Eco Centre is now a collection point to recycle wrappers through TerraCycle UK‘s new Pladis Biscuits and Snacks Recycling Programme.
TerraCycle have partnered with McVitie’s®, Carr’s®, Go Ahead® and Jacob’s® to create a free to use recycling programme for any brand of biscuit, cracker and cake wrappers, and a fundraising opportunity for Globe to further our environmental projects. The following items are what we are now able to accept at the Eco Centre as part of the programme:
Please only donate materials that cannot be recycled through your normal waste collection at home (i.e. cardboard boxes).
What happens to the waste
Once collected, the biscuit, cracker and cake wrappers are cleaned and melted into hard plastic that can be remoulded to make new recycled products.
Your Chance to Win
To celebrate we will be taking part in a collection contest to help us win further funding for projects, as well as a brilliant hamper for one of our lucky collectors – so make sure, when you donate, you also register your details to enter the competition!
Be sure to bring down your wrappers down to us at the Eco Centre (find our location here) – entries close 18th Jan 2019 so please start collecting those wrappers!
