TTL recognise that it is not always easy to replace all plastic items. To reduce plastics items that are sent to incineration or landfill, TTL are involved in facilitating a Town Centre collection point for hard to recycle plastics. These plastics are recycled for rewards by local charities and schools through a scheme set up by Terracycle. Click here for a list of products you can take to Bamboo Turtle (5 The Arcade, Letchworth) for recycling.
Plastic Free Letchworth are currently looking into how packaging can be reused rather than sent to landfill. We are looking to find a location where people can bring good quality items such as:
- Protective Mailing Bags
- Bubble Wrap
- Gift Bags
Please let us know if you are a local business who can re-use packaging in your business, which will help us understand the potential for this re-use opportunity.
