In conjunction with Mid Devon District Council, Sustainable Villages will be organising a collection of mixed plastics for recycling on the Friday, 1st Nov between 9am and 2pm in Tiverton Market Square. If successful we will organise other collections in the future.
The use of plastics is growing by 4% every year; 275,000 tonnes of plastic are used each year in the UK, that's about 15 million bottles! Most families throw away about 40kg of plastic every year which could otherwise be recycled. Plastic can take up to 500 years to decompose so let's recycle it!
We will take:
• drink bottles • sandwich containers
• household cleaning bottles • cds and cd cases
• Yoghurt pots • plastic flower pots and seed trays
• Margarine tubs • soft plastic bags
• Ready meal containers
Please clean and/or rinse first and remove any cellophane packaging.
Don't let Devon go to waste!
