Are you confused about what plastics to recycle?

Pledge2Recycle Plastics is working with all Kent councils to help reduce that confusion.

The charity works to educate and advise citizens, there dedicated Kent website includes competitions for communities and general recycling guidance.

Did you know you can recycle ALL bottles whether from the bathroom and kitchen as well as plastic packaging in the form of a pot, tub or tray?

All bottles should be empty when placed for recycling with the tops back on. Pots, tubs and trays should have the absorbent layer and film lid removed as these need to go into general waste.

Please DO NOT put toothpaste tubes, pill packs, nappies, textiles, batteries and food into recycling.

Textiles should be taken to clothing banks or charity shops. You should take carrier bags, bread bags and empty frozen veg packets, to your local supermarket front of store collection points. Please check the Recycle Now website for more information.

It is important that all recycling is kept clean, dry and loose and NOT in any carrier or black bags as these cannot be opened at the recycling centre.

The team at Pledge2Recycle is happy to take your queries you will find them @pledge2recycle on social media or email amanda.bakewell@recoup.org.
