We are working as a public TerraCycle collection point for various plastic packaging items. By doing this we earn points that are then turned into a financial donation to Noah's Ark Children's Hospice, the chaity of our choice.
TerraCycle is Eliminating the Idea of Waste® by recycling the "non-recyclable." Whether it's coffee capsules from your home, pens from a school, or plastic gloves from a manufacturing facility, TerraCycle can collect and recycle almost any form of waste. We work as a recycling point for Carex, Impreal Leather and Bayleys of Bond street soap pumps, all Kinder packaging, Weleda tubes, Flash wipes and other flexible plastic packaging for some household cleaning products.

We have also added a household cleaning supply refill station and you can find Fill Refill wash up liquid, all purpose and kitchen cleaner. All you need to do is bring your own bottle and fill it. We also have a limited amount of branded empty glass bottles you can purchase.
