Recycling Project

We are gathering items for recycling that cannot go into Leeds City Council’s Green Bins. Please put the following into the special Recycling Project bin which is outside the Church Hall at the far end of the car park.

 Foil crisp packets

 Dental care plastic e.g. plastic packaging, toothbrushes, empty floss containers

 Biscuit and cracker packaging

 Bread loaf plastic bags (not waxed paper)

 Chocolate wrappers and outside packaging from multi-packs

 Pringle tubes

 Writing implements e.g. pens, markers

 Pet food pouches and larger bags with plastic packaging

 Medicine/tablet empty blister packs

No need to sort – just put them all in.

Please do clean things out first, and leave items in a bag when you put them in the bin.

Note We are no longer taking Type 2 and Type 4 plastic as this can go into LCC’s Green Bins

Please contact Pete Oldfield if you would be interested in helping with the Recycling Project
