Recycling Centres in Sheffield - Search Tool
We are excited to finally share with the world our new recycling search tool. This is something we’ve been working on behind the scenes for the last couple of months with the aim to make recycling in Sheffield that much easier for everyone. And this was especially a priority with the comments and questions received on our Sheffield plastics recycling guide back in September.
This new recycling search database not only includes your usual recycling sites, but also TerraCycle points for items that are harder to recycle (for example – electrical toothbrush heads or mascara wands). And some of the products, mostly plastic, that supermarkets take back for recycling that may not be widely known. And it also includes charities that will take items that can be donated instead of recycled, and retail shops that have their own recycling schemes.
However, if you think something is missing then we really encourage you to get involved with us and the whole process. We want this to be an interactive tool that people can also contribute to and improve, so it’s always useful, accurate, and up-to-date.
We are also looking at possible sponsorship opportunities for groups in the community who would be prepared to take on responsibility for collectively recycling in their area. These could be existing groups or if you wanted to set up a new group in your area. If this sounds like something your group needs and would benefit from, please contact us via email.
Or you can contact us via a new Facebook group we have set up. A group that incorporates the community and collective action, and encourages people to connect with like-minded people and access relevant resources.
