Recycle and Raise Funds for Philip's Footprints
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Deposit your recycling at various collection points around the island (see below) these are collected and when a large enough amount is ready, this is kindly taken (for free) over to the UK by a haulage company and collected by Terracycle, who then pay us according to weight/items.
Please find all the information you need below, but if you have a question please send us a message on our Facebook group or email Rachna, our Treasurer and recycling queen on firstname.lastname@example.org
How Else Can I Help?
Our recycling scheme is growing which is brilliant for both the charity and the environment but does mean we need some more help!
Could you be a 'Recycling Friend' and adopt a recycling box in your parish or near your work? You would act as a point of contact for collections when the box is full and deliver the recycling to Rachna.
We currently have the following boxes looking for a Recycling Friend :-
Rainbow Tots Beaumont
Rainbow Tots Les Quennevais
Little Oaks (Highlands)
St Peter's School (Box is in the Nursery)
