Recycling program achievements 2019
Munchkins Miniature Shetland Rescue

2019 was our first year collecting the recycle and we received a great response. Throughout the year we collected 7,888 items that went to be recycling which meant we raised £122.65 for charity in 2019. The charity which was chosen by you at Christmas was Munchkins Miniature Shetland Rescue in Colyton.

Munchkins Miniature Shetland Rescue was set up in 2014 to rescue miniature Shetland ponies from abuse, abandon and neglect. They currently rehome ponies within a 30-50 mile radius of their centre in East Devon on a long term loan basis. They have currently rehomed around 35 ponies and love visiting them in their new homes. The ponies will always remain under the ownership of Munchkins so that if circumstances change, they will be returned to us so that their future is secured.

Terracycle logo

TerraCycle is an innovative recycling company that has become a global leader in recycling typically hard-to-recycle waste.

How it works

1. You drop the recycling off to us or we collect it from you hassle free.
2. We collect enough to reach Terracycle requirements which is 7Kg of recycling then we box it up and send it via Terracycle’s free collection service.
3. Once Terracycle have received the recycling, they process it and we receive points for the amount we have sent.
4. We redeem our points in financial donations to local charities which are chosen by our customers at christmas each year.

We are rewarded 50 TerraCycle® points for each kilogram of plastic pet food packaging sent. However, the points will only be awarded if the parcel reaches the minimum weight of 7 kilogram.

For example:

1 kilogram of plastic pet food packaging = 0 TerraCycle® points

7 kilograms of plastic pet food packaging = 350 TerraCycle® points

10 kilograms of plastic pet food packaging = 500 TerraCycle® points


What happens to this waste

Once collected, the aggregated plastic pet food packaging are sorted, shredded and washed. Food residue is composted. The material is then densified into hard-granulated plastic granules. The granules are then extruded so they can be incorporated into the production of different plastic products such as fence posts and benches.
