A couple of months ago I got in touch with one of our local Green Parties about helping collect recycling. The good thing is that it is that fiddly stuff that you do not know what do to with! For example: plastic bread wrappers, tubes of toothpaste and chocolate wrappers.

The company that works on recycling these fiddly items is called Terracycle.
