Frequently Asked Questions

What is TerraCycle?

TerraCycle is Eliminating the Idea of Waste® by recycling the "non-recyclable." TerraCycle can collect and recycle almost any form of waste. They partner with individual collectors as well as major consumer product companies, retailers, manufacturers, municipalities, and small businesses across 20 different countries.


'With your help, we are able to divert millions of pounds of waste from landfills and incinerators each month.'

How will it work in the Allen Valleys?

Please collect waste as detailed on the information poster.  (Click here) 

Please make sure that you only include the permitted items and make sure that things that can go into council recycling do!

You can drop off your items at the large lime green wheelie bin outside St Cuthbert's Church Hall in Allendale or take it to the bin outside the door of Allendale Primary School.


Waste left at the Church Hall will be taken to the Primary School where children who have volunteered to help with the project will sort it into the different categories.


Items are then packaged up for collection. Medicine packets will be taken to a Superdrug store.


The school receives a small amount of money for each package and is using this money to develop further environment related schemes in school.
