In Christchurch, we currently have 4 recycling stations located at the Dun cow pub, Townley primary school, The community centre, and the junction of Fen View (opposite where the post van would park). The recycling stations are for community public use, they take specific waste items not currently recycled, like crisp packets and pet food pouches. These are items that would normally end up in landfill sites polluting our planet. 

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. 

The Items are collected by a company called Terracycle who break them down, turn them into plastic pellets and turn them back into reusable products, such as garden furniture, and watering cans, as a bonus if we collect sufficient quantity of our items we can also earn money for Townley Primary School.  

Each station has instructions and guidelines, all easy to follow so please consider our eco-project and our volunteers and follow these strictly. We also ask that people please wash out there pet food pouches, it is not acceptable to expect others to do this for you.

Important Note

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.
