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.
