TerraCycle

We are pleased to announce that there is a now a TerraCycle Bin with the proceeds going to St. John’s Primary School. It is placed at the right hand side of Speen Stores building (Laurel Close).
Thank you so much for recycling with us. Not only are you removing waste from landfill but you are helping to raise funds for our local school.

Please check the information below about what can be placed in it.

In order to be a great recycler, please follow these guidelines:-

  1. Please stick to the list of items accepted.
  2. Ensure all food is emptied from the packaging.
  3. Please try and pre-sort items where possible-bread bags are a great way to separate items.
  4. Try and avoid mixing items up (e.g. Sweet wrappers inside crisp packets are a bit of a nightmare!)
  5. Please don’t fold up packets-flat packets are the best.
  6. If you are unsure about an item please email Jo – recycling@allaboutjo.me.uk
    or check the Facebook page – https://www.facebook.com/RecyclingForStJohnsPrimary
