Recycling Scheme Coming to BRC!

As part of national recycling week, we are excited to announce that we will be working with Hershel Grammar School to collect recycled waste through the free TerraCycle recycling programme. Bath Road Central will be donating recycling bins to the school to enable them to continue with this amazing project. We’re looking to start this project on the 1st November 2020.

How does it work?

Hershel Grammar School have chosen three recycling programmes from TerraCycle’s hard-to-recycle list, members of the public can drop off items from one of these programmes to be recycled by TerraCycle. Hershel Grammar School will earn points which are turned into a donation to the school. The school has chosen to use this money to predominately promote recycling as part of their education programme.

We are calling on all our tenants to help us with this new recycling initiative. The below hard-to-recycle items can be recycled:

  1. Crisps, nuts, etc packets (https://www.terracycle.com/en-GB/brigades/kpsnacks)
  2. Biscuits and snacks packets (https://www.terracycle.com/en-GB/brigades/pladis)
  3. Writing instruments (https://www.terracycle.com/en-GB/brigades/bic-uk)
