Recyling for chartiy

The collected waste from many of the streams is packed up by volunteers and sent off to be broken down into plastic pellets and made into things like playground equipment, in return the charity of choice receives a donation.

Superdrug_Main-Image_UK

We are the only place in the Bexley borough accepting medicinal waste for recycling. The box has to be purchased, so we use some profit from the refills to do this good thing for the environment (plus it’s good for the council as it diverts non recyclable waste out of the borough).

Dishwasher tablet packets, dishwasher salt packets, household wipes and refills (no baby wipe packets).

Colgate-Main-Image-UK_v1

Toothpaste tubes, toothbrushes and toothpaste packaging (please keep separate in a bread bag for instance to avoid unnecessary unhygienic handling).
