Compass Disability Services have teamed up with Terraycyle Uk to recycle specific plastics that are otherwise hard to recycle and cannot be placed in your usual kerbside boxes. The plastics we can recycle are shown on the following poster, with more specific information in the “We can Recycle” section. For every piece of plastic we collect we generate a cash for Compass Disability Services.

To date we have saved more the 28000 pieces of plastic from going to landfill and raised over £500 for Compass Disability Services.In 2019 we have teamed up with various local business’ who have agreed to host collection points, making it easier for you to get your plastics to us.
