A big thank you to everyone who has brought in their recycling to the shop.
Every crisp packet, toothbrush, pet food pouch etc brings us a small financial reward which helps with the running of the shop, library and community centre.
Just one thing – it takes quite a bit of volunteer time sorting out all the recycling and you could help by;
Putting your recycling in the correct box.
Making sure you are contributing items just on the list.
Unfortunately we cannot send other items even though the packaging appears to be made of the same material.
For example we cannot send nut, popcorn or pork scratching packets, bags that have contained tomatoes, fruit, vegetable or pasta, or packaging for toilet wipes or plastic bottles which are accepted under the council recycling scheme eg. shampoo bottles.
Flattening out crisp bags.
Please don’t fold the bags into triangles or tie them into knots.
The recycling process starts with washing the bags, so they aren’t accepted if they are tightly folded or knotted.
