Recycle your snack packs with us!

Dawn Thomas

It’s probably obvious to all that the Wildlife Trust is, well, a wildlife conservation charity. Issues around the disposal of waste, and marine litter in particular, certainly cross into our ‘territory’ – but others often take the lead on recycling and the like. Recently, however, we’ve decided to do our bit, too!

We’ve partnered with Terracycle to become a drop-off location for three snack-related recycling programmes.  (Any accusations that this is because our staff eat too many snacks are, of course, utterly false.)  You can now deliver your clean crisp packet; biscuit, cracker and cake wrappers; and Pringles® cans to our Bangor office!  What’s more, once we’ve packaged them up, we can earn a bit of money for wildlife through arranging to have them recycled.

For more information on exactly what is accepted, visit www.terracycle.co.uk/en-GB/brigades and browse to the relevant programme.  You’ll see that there are many more than our three – we’re starting small, with a view to growing.
