TESCO recycle your clean plastic carrier bags,  frozen food bags, cling firm, shrink wrap off cases of drinks and canned goods, toilet roll packs, cereal inner packaging…  there’s a large dispenser in store beside the recycling for batteries, ink cartridges, low energy light bulbs and our own Recycling for Charity bin. 

There are still a number of plastics that don’t recycle – black food trays, trays from inside biscuit boxes, postage packaging, we’re surrounded by it everyday …. so take a clean dry plastic bottle and stuff it full with clean dry cut up pieces of plastic and save these going to landfill. You will need to ram the pieces down really well to make a rock solid ECO BRICK ! >>> THIS IS NOT AS STRAIGHT FORWARD AS IT SEEMS. So we plan to get together and SORT PLASTIC

NEXT EVENT is at BEECH AUCTIONS Saturday June 15th from 6pm. Bring your hard to recycle items and we’ll sort through them and help you identify the items that we can take through the RECYCLING FOR CHARITY project

Thursday MAY 30th 10 – 1pm TAMAR VALLEY AONB centre, was a massive success Thank you to Cornwall Council, Tesco Callington for joining SHARE and everyone that brought their bags of plastic items and difficult questions which we tackled head on, sorting through the maze of plastic symbols and products. Think we did a pretty good job !
