TESCO (and other supermarkets) recycle your clean plastic carrier bags, frozen food bags, shrink wrap off cases of drinks and canned goods, toilet roll packs, postal packaging in fact all stretchy plastics.
There are still a number of plastics that don’t recycle – all black plastic, rigid packaging, crinkly bags, we’re surrounded by it. SOME people are making ECO Bricks, but its not straight forward and you should find a project first to make sure you have the correct size/shape bottle and know what weight to aim for.
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 SHARE visited the Materials Recycling Facility(MRF), and the Energy Recovery Centre (CERC) Bodmin, to see the recycling and incinerator converting waste into electricity.
Please try and attend one of our sorting events, they have been very successful and informative. ALL WELCOME ! Email SHARE@south-hill.co.uk
