There is a really simple way to convert your waste into money for charity. They are step by step instructions below.
We are currently taking part in a recycling collection programme with TerraCycle®. We will be collecting non-recyclable biscuit packaging that would normally be disposed of and sent to local landfill. The TerraCycle Brigade® recycling programme is a fun and easy way to reuse waste materials, whilst helping us to raise money for HistioUK at the same time.
The waste packaging itself will be recycled into plastic products such as waste bins or watering cans, or 'upcycled' into new products such as pencil cases and lunch bags. This means that a smaller volume of raw materials then need to be extracted from the earth to produce the packaging for new products. TerraCycle will award a £0.02 donation for each biscuit packet collected and returned. Maybe you are a teacher or work in a large company and can setup simple drop off points in the staff room?
Tell me more...
Packaging from most biscuit and non-savoury snack bars can be recycled under this scheme, including Penguins, Rich Tea and digestives as well as supermarket own brand packets from similar products. Wrappers can be posted to 10kForOlly c/o 21 Eldon Street, Tuxford, NG22 0LG.
(Alternatively drop them off at 63 Kesteven Road, Stamford, Lincs, PE9 1SU)
So Susan has been busy sending off the collected wrappers. We have collected over 4000 wrappers and raised nearly £200!
Are there any other methods?
