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.
May 2024 we have raised over £ 15,000 for KICKS COUNT charity, who aim to reduce UK stillbirths plus we’ve supported many local charities, schools and good causes. 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.

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 https://hillponyresources.weebly.com/

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.
