Terracycle is a recycling business which primarily runs a volunteer-based recycling platform to collect waste and the partners with businesses or local areas to turn it into raw material to be used I new products. By collecting items that would have normally went to landfill, money can be raised for schools and charities making recycling with teracycle a win-win!
To find out more about how you can get involved, check out local Terracycler, Clare Rice and what she is doing to combat waste going to landfill. Clare was a recent guest on Bangor Fm which can be found here. Clare also runs a Facebook group which you can join to get involved and receive advice on recycling, just search: Alternative Recycling (inc Terracycle) & Charity Fundraising.
Here at SERC we are helping Clare raise money for the organisations she currently supports, Holywood Steiner School and Kicks Count Charity. Look out for the Terracyle box in the Bangor Ueat canteen, which all gets sorted and sent off to local Terracyle drop off points. So, drop off your empty and dry crisp, nut and popcorn packets into the box and help reduce waste going to landfill!
