Recycling

We have teamed with TerraCycle to become a recycling drop-off point. TerraCycle is an innovative recycling company that recycles typically hard-to-recycle waste, that we can't leave out for kerbside collection.

In recycling these items, we raise money for a number of charities including Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice Care and Kicks Count.

Our collection bins are in the foyer of the church which is open 9am to 5pm, seven days a week. The church hall has so many visitors, that we think we make an ideal collection point.

Here are the items we are currently collecting:
