Back in December, we became proud supporters of the national crisp packet recycling scheme, with our Petrol Station being the first collector in the Morecambe and Lancaster area.
Since then we were shortlisted as Sunshine Awards finalists for our contribution to the community and have now been highly commended in Sustainability at the awards on May 3rd
The crisp packet recycling scheme is an initiative set up by TerraCycle and Walkers. TerraCycle aim is to recycle the ‘non-recyclable’ and avoid millions of pounds of waste from landfills and incinerators each year.
Once collected, the crisp packets are separated by plastic type, cleaned, and extruded into plastic pellets to make new recycled products. For every 400 packets collected, TerraCycle will provide £2 monetary reward to a non-for-profit organisation and/or local charity of choice.
To donate your empty packages pop down to Ovangle Rd, Heaton with Oxcliffe, Morecambe, LA3 3PF.
