Let’s expand recycling facilities locally
We are exploring the possibility of getting more terracyle collection points in Cockermouth www.terracycle.com. This is an initiative to enable people to recycle waste which is not usually collected, as it is lower quality and harder to sort. Let us know if you decide to host a collection point locally.
