Crisp Packets

Last year 50kg of crisp packets were sent, which is around 25000 packets – and raised £100 for our nominated charity Overton Preschool Playgroup.

In Overton we have two public drop off points for the Walkers Crisp packet recycling scheme, run by Terracycle – at the Community Centre and at Overton C of E Primary School.

Once crisp packets are collected, packed and sent to TerraCycle®, they are sorted and separated by material composition. The separated items are then cleaned, shredded, and made into new recycled products.

If you would like to help collecting or packing please get in touch – many hands make light work!
