Changes to soft & hard plastic recycling

For those that use our recycling facilities, we will be changing the way in which we collect single material plastics (the hard and soft schemes). This is to make it simpler to use but to also reduce the amount of contaminated or unusable plastic we receive.
 
Instead of reopening the schemes as they are, we will be announcing replacement schemes which will be more specific i.e. plastic bottle tops. This will also help our volunteers to manage the flow of plastics that are coming through the craft workshop.
 
We still have the majority of our recycling schemes open for ‘difficult to recycle’ items. The status of the schemes and details can be found here: https://www.globefoundation.org.uk/recycling/
 
If you have an excess of soft plastics we would recommend that you use one of the supermarket soft plastic bins.
