  1. Thank you so much for this information! I will definitely start collecting these items and bring them down with me. Thinking of making a check list, so I can make it easier to remember 😊

  2. Do cosmetic and toothpaste tubes etc need to be clean inside before leaving at the recycling point? Thank you.

    1. Hi Nicola, they need to be empty but not necessarily clean. Although unfortunately we have just been informed that this program is closing in July 2019.

  3. Do you take pill blister packs for recycling? These don’t seemed to be mentioned anywhere on the government recycling website 🙁
