TerraCycle is Eliminating the Idea of Waste® by recycling the "non-recyclable." Whether it's coffee capsules from your home, pens from a school, or plastic gloves from a manufacturing facility, TerraCycle can collect and recycle almost any form of waste.

As a registered collector in partnership with Terracycle, we are able to divert millions of pounds of waste from landfills and incinerators each week, month and year!
Through the free programmes we are registered for, we are rewarded with TerraCycle points for qualifying waste. These points are redeemable for a cash payment to the non-profit organisation or school of our choice. Obviously we nominate the proceeds to go towards the up keep of the bats; however, some funds are also redeemed for the Firefighters Charity and also to some small community groups that help with collecting large quantities of qualifying waste.
As part of the free recycling programmes we have set up 2 public drop-off locations; New Malden Fire Station and Steve's home address in Reigate. There is a third drop off point in Leatherhead, but this is not publically advertised.
You, the public, can use interactive maps to find these locations and drop off your specific TerraCycle® waste.

One thing we do ask is, if you do decide to collect these streams for us and help raise money for the bats, that you keep each waste stream seperate. i.e., Crisp packets neatly in one bag, pet food pouches in another bag etc...
We have to sort out each streme of waste tom send off to Terracycle so having them pre-sorted saves a massive amount of time and effort as they can go straight into a box ready to be sent off.
