Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

FOVPS have signed up to the Terracycle programme, whereby hard to recycle plastic packaging is saved from landfill, and returned to the production cycle. Plastic packaging is collected and sent away to be turned into pellets for reuse by commercial companies. We also receive points per kilo of waste to translate into funds for FOVPS.

We have a dedicated collection point in the lobby of the Community Building.

Over Christmas, do remember to bring us all your Pringles cans and Ferrero Rocher packaging.

Until the 14th January we get a bonus £5 for every parcel we send back, get all your friends and family saving up.

We collect the following plastic elements only, please check exactly what is accepted by clicking the links below. Then remove any cardboard and paper and make sure packets are rinsed and clean as necessary.  Thank you!

If anyone would like to volunteer to help monitor and process the waste, especially if you are looking for a volunteer role for a Duke of Edinburgh Award or similar scheme, please email

*We can not accept empty pill packets, bottle lids or anything not on the specific lists below, and as we have to pay for waste disposal, please do not leave any incorrect items, thanks.
