Notices for Sunday 26th April 2020
It is not easy to recycle during lockdown and it can be very tempting to put things we would normally recycle ourselves, into the bin! Please keep the faith and store them because after all this cannot last for ever. Even if we, over 70s are not allowed out for a bit longer maybe we can enlist some of our younger friends to recycle for us. I have a bulging bag of crisp packets for the Freeman hospital, a pile of books, old fabrics for H&M and empty bottles for the Body Shop, but, as my Dad would have said "they are not eating any meat" so can just accumulate!
New recycling information for after lockdown is that empty toothpaste tubes and toothbrush heads can be recycled at the Dental hospital - level 5. Also chocolate and biscuit wrappers as well as bread bags can be recycled at the Springfield Community centre at Forest Hall. Thank you, Jane, for that information.
