Recycling

Re-cycling rates are improving all the time but there is so much more we could do.

  • make full use of your kerbside collection service – for paper, tins and cans, glass, aluminium foil, textiles, plastic bottles, cardboard and garden waste.
  • get together with neighbours to take other recycling to Hills at Canal Road, Trowbridge – all other plastics, tetra paks, electrical goods, batteries, oil, rubble, wood, etc.
  • batteries can also be recycled in supermarkets.
  • support your local charity shops.
  • don’t forget Group 5 and British Heart Foundation who take bulky furniture and electrical items.
  • old tools can be donated to Tools for Self Reliance.
  • most opticians take old spectacles.
  • lots of charities welcome old mobile phones.
  • take thin, stretchy plastic bags/wrappers, fruit nets, etc. to Sainsbury’s.

P.S.  do remember to wash and squash items before putting them in bins or boxes.

Hills Group manage all of Wiltshire’s recycling.  The videos on their website are very helpful in helping to understand what Hill’s do and what happens to our recycled materials.
