Recycling through Terracycle
Bolton Rivers Clean Up | Monday 02 March 2020 | 0 Comments
This is an update on recycling opportunites around Bolton...
Last week Turton School collected and sent off over 40kg of used pens and over 1500 empty crisp packets to Terracycle for recycling.
Much of this has been collected from individuals, organisations or groups of people and dropped off at the school. The school gets points which are converted to charitable donations.
There are many places around Bolton that collect hard to recycle plastic packaging as part of the Terracycle scheme and attached is a list of who does what and where they are.
Please check the Terracycle website for the most up-to-date information.
Although recycling is not the answer to the current environmental problems, it highlights the amount of single-use plastic we use and may help people consider alternatives.
