Terracycle Schemes - for hard to recycle items

Terracycle partners with volunteers from the general public, as well as major consumer product companies, retailers, manufacturers and small businesses, to provide a route for the recycling of items which are not suitable for regular household recycling (i.e. via kerbside collections).

Such items include crisp, biscuit and popcorn packets; bread bags, pet food pouches, home hygiene products, ring carriers and certain types of coffee pods.

In addition, some Terracycle schemes enable the volunteers taking part to generate income for charities, for what they collect. 

Local Terracycle schemes

Tadworth Teracycle collect items for multiple schemes via a number of drop-off points, including locations in Leatherhead and Headley. Money raised from collections is donated to the Alzheimer’s Society, RSPCA and several other charities. More information can be found on their Facebook page

Terracyle recycling for West Ashtead School also collect for multiple schemes and have drop-off points in Leatherhead, Ashtead, Fetcham and Dorking. Any money raised is donated to West Ashtead School. More information can be found on their Facebook Page

Rethink Surrey's Waste and help your local schools

Rethink Waste is a free scheme available to anyone living in Surrey that offers a range of rewards for reducing waste.

Surrey residents can sign up online and will receive weekly emails, which include engaging and gamified activities designed to help residents reduce the amount of waste they produce. Every time a member engages with content, they receive points, which can be used to donate to schools, charities or to enter prize draws.

Participating Surrey schools can win a share of £6,000 from the scheme to run an environmental project benefiting the school and its pupils.

So, not only will you be helping the planet, as waste reduction means fewer resources are used up when creating new products, you’ll be helping good causes too.

Rethink Waste is being delivered by the Surrey Environment Partnership, made up of Surrey County Council and the 11 district and borough councils in Surrey, in collaboration with Greenredeem, an organisation that provides digital engagement platforms to provoke environmental behaviour change.

Residents can take part in Rethink Waste now by signing up online at www.rethinkwaste.co.uk
