Every year countless pieces of crisp packets end up in landfill sites across the UK.

Leigh Road Baptist Church are working with TerraCycle® to put an end to this enormous loss of resources.

The Crisp Packet Recycling Scheme allows us to recycle your crisp packets and prevent them from ending up in landfill. Not only are you helping the environment, but the waste you recycle with us also helps to fund
the church’s charity work in the community.

How to drop of your crisp packets

Please make sure your packets are completely empty before dropping them off. Crisp multipack outer packaging is accepted. Please DO NOT fold the crisp packets into triangles but flatten them completely with your hand. This helps us pack them like this quicker to send them for recycling.

Crisp packets should be flattened
Flatten and empty those crisp packets
