Terracycle. We are delighted to announce that we are now a public drop off point for the UK’s largest crisp packet recycling scheme
We are delighted to announce that we are now a public drop off point for the UK’s largest crisp packet recycling scheme provided by TerraCycle in partnership with Walkers®
TerraCycle is Eliminating the Idea of Waste® by recycling the "non-recyclable” and Walkers® offers a simple and free crisp packet recycling scheme, which accepts all brands.
How it works
You can help to divert waste from landfills and incinerators each month by donating your crisp packets.
- Drop off your crisp packets to Main Reception for the attention of Miss Catanzaro
- Post your crisp packets to us for the attention of Miss Catanzaro
- Send crisp packets with a student to deposit at one of our collection bins
Crisp multipack outer packaging is accepted. Please do not fold the crisp packets into triangles.
What happens to this waste
Once collected, the crisp packets are separated by plastic type, cleaned, and extruded into plastic pellets to make new recycled products.
We earn points for the waste we recycle!
TerraCycle® points are credited to our account as a reward for our collection efforts. The number of points given is determined by the total weight of the shipment. 1 TerraCycle® point is worth 1 penny.Once credited, the points can be redeemed into financial donations for our chosen charity ‘Oranutan Appeal UK’ which provides nursery care for orphaned orangutans.
