Fundraise for RCM by recyling
« on: December 29, 2017, 08:55:08 AM »
 RCM can receive cash when we send in recyclable items. The list below show you what we can collect.

Basically we want :-
Any brand (from cleaning products)
plastic bottle trigger heads
empty cleaning wipe packets
plastic air freshener cartridges
pumps/caps from home cleaning products (eg washing up liquid tops)

Any Brand Sweet biscuits wrappers
Any Brand Multipack sweet biscuit wrappers, plus the inner wrappers

Any brand Baby food pouches.

Any brand personal care and beauty packaging :-
face wipe packaging
face mask packaging
personal care plastic pots and tubes (eg hand cream tubes etc)
roll on deoderant bottles
hair colour kits except cardboard boxes
personal care product packaging caps, lids, pumps and trigger spray heads.


If they could be collected over a period of time and dropped off at RCM HQ or our house that would be great. (Please PM for our address if you don't know it  :D ) No need to sort them if bringing to RCM that can be done when I send them off.


Happy Collecting.
