Greening Tip for June – say no to “wishcycling” (the well intentioned but unfounded belief that something is recyclable when it is not)greening tetbury


  • we wish to recycle
  • we will read the labels
  • our recycling is washed, clean and dry
  • recyclable plastics have “chasing” arrows


  • takeaway packaging (eg greasy pizza boxes)
  • soft plastics (eg crisp packets, plastic bags and bubble wrap) use local Supermarket recycle bins
  • Batteries – again most Supermarkets have a collection pot

Putting out the wrong materials can invalidate the whole batch.  If in doubt – don’t put it out!
