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. 
Follow us on FaceBook for regular updates > 
THANK YOU SO MUCH for your support. Ali and The Team.

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.
