Items you might not know you can recycle
Please hang on to any silver lined packets. They can all be recycled except popcorn. When restrictions lift we can collect them at church and pass them onto Strode’s College for recycling under the TerraCycle scheme
Scrunch clean tinfoil into a ball (the bigger the ball, the easier it is to recycle) and add to recycling.
Nitrous Oxide canisters (NOC)
These are small, silver, bomb-shaped containers.
There is growing concern about the number of NOC appearing strewn along the road and in public spaces.
These are recyclable. Please collect them and note when and where they were found. When the restrictions are lifted, collection can be arranged.
