Recycling for Charity.

Our Community Energy group SHARE joined the Terracycle, recycling program, in 2019, to save items from being incinerated, and raise money for charities. Thanks to the manufacturers sponsoring the different programmes.
We hit a MAJOR milestone in May 2023 and have raised over £ 10,200 for KICKS COUNT charity, who aim to reduce UK stillbirths. THANK YOU EVERYONE !! Amazing we can raise this sort of money on items usually thrown away, but can be made into new products Thanks to TERRACYCLE.

THANK YOU SO MUCH for your support. Ali and The Team.

Medicine Blister Packs Update 30/03/24 Superdrug or other stores are not recycling these, if accepted they will be incinerated so put in your council “black bag” waste collection to be incinerated locally.  

Full list of items that you can recycle:

  • The manufacturers that sponsor the programmes dictate what can be accepted.
  • ALL items must be sorted into the different programmes, not all mixed together. We cannot sort your items.

Remember its not the packet it’s what was in the packet that is important, its the manufacturers that give money to our charities .

PLUS Old mobile phones, cameras, gadgets, used stamps and unwanted jewellery can also be recycled for the Hill Pony Resources charity, who are supporting ponies here on our doorstep

Cornwall Council confirm our recycling is not being dumped in landfill anywhere. A small percentage is reprocessed in Europe, legally, responsibly and ethically. 
In August 2019  SHARE visited the Materials Recycling Facility(MRF), and the Energy Recovery Centre (CERC) Bodmin, to see the recycling and incinerator converting waste into electricity.
