Terracycle Recycling Point
We collect the following items that are not usually recyclable via our kerbside collections:
Baby food pouches and their lids/caps (any brand, rinse clean please)
Ella's Kitchen snack wrappers
Toothpaste tubes (empty) and toothbrushes, oral care packaging
Items can be left in the cardboard collection boxes in the passageway on the right hand side of the entrance hall within the Pippins Community Centre (any weekday except Tuesday.)
Axminster Baby Cafe, a group that meets at the Pippins Community Centre each week, earns points through the Terracycle scheme for each load of recycling sent. These points can be redeemed for a cash payment to put towards the group as a not-for-profit, community organisation.
We can also accept Plastic milk bottle lids (green, red and blue ONLY) which, as part of a marvellous partnership between Hooke Court school near Beaminster and a school in Malawi, are sent to Africa to be used as maths and counting resources by the Malawi pupils!
