Lady Bay Drop-off sites

Drop-off points in Lady Bay or nearby

Each person below has established a means of collecting and recycling the items shown, often using Terracycle or Ellie's Fund.  Organisations like these require a minimum volume to process, so the drop-in centres are the best way of collecting that volume in a reasonable timescale.  More volunteers always welcome - see our targets at the end.

Anne's - 52 Holme Road, bin in front garden

Pens - any brand of pen, felt tip, highlighter, marker, correction fluid pot, correction tape, but not wooden pencils or crayons. Accepted waste by Terracycle.

Confectionary wrappers etc are NO LONGER ACCEPTED since they can now be recycled via most supermarkets, including the local Coop.

Lady Bay Pharmacy

Medicines and inhalers - it is standard practice for all pharmacies to accept unused medicines and used inhalers.

They have suspended collection of medicine blister packs; temporarily, we hope.
