A bag will be provided for your donation, if you fill your donation bag and you still have more then you can use any other bag to donate.  We receive £500 per tonne or £0.50/kg which will be a great boost for our fundraising. In addition it will also raise awareness amongst the children of the benefits of recycling and reuse.
