Update For 2021 – I have decided to reduce the number of stations in the village. I shall be removing the Dun Cow Pub recycling station permanently and will be shutting the Townley School recycling station for the foreseeable future. With COVID still affecting a lot of people, and still prevalent, it is a lot of work to maintain 4 stations, keeping them clean, safe, and useable. Our Fenview and Community Centre station get the most traffic, so I will keep them in place. For Townley, I hope one day we can return this to be fully open, but for now, for the safety of the children and the safety of the teachers, this will remain closed. Thank you for your understanding.
In Christchurch, we currently have 2 recycling stations one is located at the community centre, and the other the junction of Fen View (opposite where the post van would park). The recycling stations are for community public use open to everyone, in the village and surrounding villages. All items taken here are items that would normally end up in landfill sites polluting our planet. They are NOT for general rubbish. We have an amazing group of volunteers who help look after these stations, they will check and empty them periodically, and report back any problems or issues.
This page is for the other items we collect outside Terracycle. Remember each station has instructions and guidelines, all easy to follow so please consider our Eco-project and our volunteers and follow these strictly.
Remember our goal is to reduce the amount of waste landing in landfill sites, this will help protect our planet, reduce our methane and CO2 gas, protect our animal conservation and help start re-building the damage we have done to our world. It is scary being a pioneer, I know It is easy to look at countries like the US and China who are some of the biggest contributors to pollution and say “well there worse my little bit won’t help” but we need to change that attitude, if we ALL do our little bit, it makes a huge difference to the whole picture, little steps lead to big changes. Be a pioneer and make your mark on the world.
