Recycling is a major part of the Hospice’s fundraising…
The Hospice is able to make money by selling on a whole range of materials that often get thrown away. From the usual recyclable objects like newspapers and aluminum, to more unusual materials like bras, please consider how your unwanted materials could help to support the Hospice! We have recently reviewed our recycling scheme locations and have updated the table below with further details.
