New Fundraising for RCM. Save your rubbish !!
« on: February 13, 2015, 12:03:23 PM »
I have signed RCM up to receive cash when we send in recyclable items. New ones have been added to the list.

Basically we want :-
any plastic bottle trigger heads (from cleaning products)
any empty cleaning wipe packets
any plastic air freshener cartridges
any 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

We are also collecting :-

Coffee packaging - (coffee jar lids (not the jar), pouches from refillable packets, coffee bean packets)
Baby food pouches.

Please see the attachments for more information.

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

I can also supply a pre-paid label for the biscuit wrappers and the cleaning products if anyone has a large amount to send  and they can go straight to Terracylce.

Happy Collecting.

Using TerraCycle? Can you collect used coffee pods too as I know Tassimo have an arrangement with Terracycle for these and should be a few of us that could donate pods :)

Yes we are using terracycle.

We can collect Tassimo pods and the outer wrappers but can't send them off at the moment as there are no free "collector" spaces left. If one becomes available then hopefully we can be put forward for it. Someone has to stop collecting to free a space up. We would  need to collect a lot of pods, minimum amount to be sent in is 15kg which is around 890 pods/outer packing.

Please collect all your sweet biscuits wrappers NOW.

We must send in a shipment within 6 months or we will not be able to send any in at all.

So please, please, please eat loads of biscuits.

DISCLAIMER
RCM is in no way responsible for any weight gain caused by consuming biscuits to help the cause :)

We have now been accepted as  a Tassimo pod collector, so can people start to save their pods and outer foil wrappers and send them to Linda/Andy's home address or bring them to RCM HQ.

Thank you.
