As winter rolls around, the tubs of chocolates, endless packs of wrapping paper and cards from friends, family and acquaintances start making their way into our homes.
Recycling for Charity, led by Ali Humphreys, is accepting a number of items that would not usually be recycled at home, in order to reduce the amount of plastic waste that tends to build up over this busy season.
Recycling for Charity will be at Tesco in Launceston (10.15am-11.15am in the recycling bay), the Frog and Bucket in South Petherwin (11.30am) and Coads Green old phone box (12pm) on Thursday, 8th December.
So yes, those empty Quality Street tubs, takeaway pots and other items can all be recycled into new products AND will be raising money for charity.
Recycling for Charity are accepting reusable bottles and baby bottles, old tupperware boxes, PP5 containers and takeaway boxes, sweet and chocolate tubs, all plastic bottle tops and even CDs and DVDs.
