TerraCycle trial makes it easier to recycle

Ever wondered if you can recycle a Pringles® tube or your toothbrush? Well, you now have the chance to recycle everyday items that typically leave you scratching your head and are often hard to dispose of in a ‘green’ way. In a six-month trial, Ealing Council has teamed up with TerraCycle, a leading organisation dedicated to boosting recycling rates. The trial scheme has provided facilities to recycle a wide range of items not currently suitable for your blue bin.

Doncaster mum recycles other people's 'unrecyclables' to raise cash for charity

Karen James from Rossington has collected nearly 20,000 items which are not accepted by Doncaster Council for recycling.
She has set up a publicly accessible drop-off point at her home on Bond Street, allowing the whole community to send “unrecyclable” packaging and products for recycling.
For each shipment of material she sends to waste firm TerraCycle, Karen receives a monetary reward which she donates to the RSPCA.
