Recycling For Charity – help for the confused


See also our web page here…

in partnership with

The waste that SHARE collects for recycling is sent to a company called Terracycle, where it is sorted by type and then goes on to be made into other products such as picnic benches, furniture, garden planters, playground equipment, watering cans…

By agreement with certain manufacturers of plastic packaging, Terracycle collects very specific items. For example, the Hovis scheme takes all brands of bread loaf bags (not just Hovis ones), and Colgate offers a scheme collecting all brands of toothbrushes and toothpaste tubes. There are also schemes for biscuit and cake wrappers, confectionery, crisps and snacks, pet food pouches, home care products and personal care products. Most of these items can’t be accepted in kerbside recycling collections.

The similarity of many plastic products can lead to some confusion. For example, is a bag with apples in the same thing as a bread bag? The answer is NO, because the Hovis scheme only takes loaf bags. It doesn’t accept bags from rolls, wraps, crumpets etc either!

Here is a note found at Stoke Climsland Old School collection point this morning:

This person had also left several bags of perfectly well-sorted recycling, which we are grateful for.

BUT… there were very few things in this bag that we CAN recycle – pictured here (also 4 or 5 crisp packets)

Sweets, personal care plastic packaging, crisp packets (not pictured)

There were several food trays that could have gone in the kerbside collection. And pictured below, quite a lot that we CAN’T recycle. These bags should go in your kerbside waste, and will be taken to the energy recovery centre at St Dennis. And I think old lightbulbs are often collected at larger supermarkets, along with batteries, or you can take them to your local recycling centre (Saltash or Launceston). The bread bag on the left of the photo is OK, but all the stuff in it was waste.

WE HOPE THIS ARTICLE HELPS TO REDUCE CONFUSION.

NOT ACCEPTED BY TERRACYCLE: cereals, frozen food bags, herbs, nuts, fruit bags, cheese packets, rice bag, plastic cup and light bulbs

We have collection points at: the Parish Hall in Golberdon, Callington Tesco, Nanny Oakleys Cafe, the Tamar Valley Centre at Drakewalls, Launceston Co-op and Pets At Home, Tre Pol & Pen, South Petherwin church, Coads Green phone box, Upton Cross community centre, Millennium House Pensilva, and more.

Thank you to everybody who brings their non-kerbside recycling to our collection points.

We sort and package everything once or twice a week to be sent off to Terracycle via UPS. This is a real eye-opening experience, and should be seen by everybody at least once.

If you would like to help (even just once, no pressure to commit regularly), please email SHARE@south-hill.co.uk or leave a message on our Facebook page

Cllr David Skelton welcomed everyone, thanked the W.I members for providing and serving the refreshments and gave his report.

South Hill Parish Council – March 19th 2019 meeting


Parish Council meetings are held on the third Tuesday of each month at 7.30pm. Members of the public are welcome to attend to address the council at the start of the meeting with any matters or questions or just sit in and stay for the meeting or leave at any time.

Parish Hall Refurbishment    The Parish Council has worked alongside the Parish Hall Committee to obtain funding to carry out some refurbishment works.  The Hall will be closed for up to six weeks when a new hall floor and heating system will be installed.  Grant funding has been obtained to cover most the costs.  There is a small amount of ground works required for the heating system so this will involve closing the recreation field while a trench is dug and pipes installed.  Notices will be displayed on all entrances but limited access will be allowed to the children’s play area. Although this may cause some inconvenience for a short period of time, the work will give us all a much improved hall for the future.

The next Parish Council meeting on the 16th April 2019 will therefore be held at St Sampsons Church; same time 7.30pm.  Please get in touch if you have any questions.

FACE YOGA – COMING SOON


Some of you might not know what Face Yoga is, others may already know or might have seen the recent programme on TV Twinstitute where the twin doctors tried Face Yoga and a £1000 facial and scientifically tested the results. In just one month Face Yoga made them look 3 years younger than the £1000 facial!

Weekly classes are starting at The Old School, South Hill Parish Hall, Golberdon and Pensilva Hall after Easter. The classes are run by Lilian Jones. It combines facial exercises, acupressure, massage, relaxation, breathing and visualisation techniques for your mind, body and soul.

It’s a natural way to make you look and feel younger and healthier. As an aromatherapist Lilian will mix specific oils that improve the quality of your skin. Lilian has been practising yoga for nearly forty years and a teacher for about fourteen years. So Face Yoga is putting all the skills into practice. Come along and do something for yourself. Relax and look forward to more youthful looks as you turn back the age clock.

Classes cost £6 each or £50 if you book 10.

 Parish Hall News

 A year ago SHARE launched “Power The Night With Sunlight”, to gain votes for an M&S Energy grant to install a battery to store the energy produced by the PV panels all day around.  Thank you to the 1000s that voted and pledged money for gifts, BUT despite the huge support, we came second. However, this summer M&S Energy asked if we could complete our project by the end of September 2018. We did, despite a scare on the deadline when the installer’s wife went into early labour! The data produced by the battery storage so far is really interesting and it is encouraging to see the savings. Within the budget SHARE are also installing new low energy light fittings throughout the hall.

 The Parish Hall committee and the Parish Council have just secured grant funding for further improvements at the hall and planning in underway for new flooring, heating and hopefully more.

 If you think you have the skills to help with this project, in particular advice is needed on costing the various ways the insulation and heating could be improved, from a quantity surveyor for example. Contact David Skelton 382397 dave@pencashna.com

 SHARE will be given the old floor boards, what can we/you do with them? If you’d like a piece of history, let Astrid know. SHARE@south-hill.co.uk 383620

David Skelton has stepped down as Chairman but stays as a Director, Geoff Hardman has taken over as Chairman, Graham Beven Finance Director. Astrid Fischer Company Secretary and Sue Skelton Treasurer make up the Directors, with Mary Hardman membership secretary and Ali Humphreys PR making up the Management team that meet every month.

A year ago SHARE launched “Power The Night With Sunlight” led by Ali and Astrid and supported by the hall committee with Nick Easton as chairman, to gain votes for a M&S Energy grant to install a system to store the energy produced by the PV panels put on the hall roof 3 years ago, in short a battery . Thank you to the 1000’s that voted,(and got their friends to vote) BUT despite the huge support, we came second and lost out. BUT this summer, M&S Energy asked if we were still pursuing our project, and could we complete by the end of September 2018. We did and had a scare on the deadline when the installer’s wife went in to early labour!

The battery has been installed and tested and the data produced so far is really interesting and encouraging to see where further savings may be made. Within the budget SHARE are also installing new low energy light fittings throughout the hall.

Looking at other projects, the firewood sales continue to be a success and we’re searching for ways to be more sustainable; encourage coppicing and we’d still love to have a Parish Woodland. Continue reading
