Llangollen and District Friends of the Earth are trialling the crisp packet recycling scheme offered by Terracycle. We are interested to gauge local uptake of an extended Producer responsibility scheme, and are keen to hear from anyone using this scheme or any of the other free recycling schemes available.
Many schemes offer the public and community groups the opportunity to collect waste that would otherwise be unrecyclable (and is often found littering our streets) and send it off to be recycled into item to be used again. It also has the added benefit that these schemes are funded by the producers.
These schemes can help Wales and our local communities recycle more and hopefully discourage littering. Llangollen and District Friends of the Earth have set up a number of collection points for the Crisp packets in Llangollen and neighbouring towns.
Current drop offs for this scheme are;
Ysgol Bryn Clwyd in Llandyrnog
Miri Methrin Nursery in Pwllglas & Llysfasi
The Rafa Club Llangollen
Welsh Dee Trust in Llangollen
Ysgol Min Y Ddol in Cefn Mawr
Pengwern Community Centre, Llangollen
Hill & Roberts Accountants, Ruthin
The Star Inn, Ruthin
