The recycling shed is situated round the back of the Baptist Church.  It is now open for a limited number of items.  At present we can collect only what we know we can move on safely.


Where else can you recycle?

Wiltshire Air Ambulance have a recycling centre in the Phoenix Emporium, Tollgate Road, Salisbury.  They are collecting crisp packets, plastic sweet wrappers, baby food pouches, Pringles tubes...... We are hoping to collect some of these things in future, but do not have the capacity to do so at the moment.

Accepted Pet Food packaging.  Please make sure that any pouches are thoroughly rinsed and dried.  If food residue is left the whole batch is considered 'contaminated' and has to be thrown away.

Please leave items in the correct containers.  
If there's no container, then we are not currently collecting!  Please don't leave batteries - they are easy to recycle at the Co-op or the Pharmacy - or anywhere that sells them.........

You can recycle:

  • Pet food packaging, if it is one of the 'accepted items, and there is no food residue.  Pouches should be thoroughly rinsed and dried - and flattened carefully
  • Dental waste - toothbrushes, toothpaste tubes - including outer packaging.  Unfortunately we cannot accept bamboo toothbrushes
  • Old spectacles
  • Water filter cartridges
  • Low energy light bulbs
