Medical Blister Packs Added to Transition Buxton's 'Hard to Recycle' Recycling Scheme!


Transition Buxton are working hard to achieve ‘Plastic Free Community’ status in Buxton using the Surfers Against Sewage Toolkit. To augment the Council's plastic recycling, they placed special collecting bins in two supermarkets in Buxton for items that are hard to recycle.

The scheme also helps raise money for local good causes. Recently, they have been delighted to present the Serpentine Community Garden with a cheque for £139.

The scheme is now able to accept empty medical blister packs, thanks to Superdrug in Buxton's Springs Shopping Centre.  Once collected, the material is then extruded into plastic pellets to make new recycled products.

The full list of items currently able to be recycled through this scheme can be found on their website or on the bins themselves.
