The Grow BoA phoney box is not a recycling point

We’d like to remind everyone that the phoney box on Whitehill is only for plants and seeds — it is not a recycling point.

Recently, non-recyclables such as plant pots and trays have been left in the phoney box. Much of the waste left is NOT recyclable in the kerbside collection. It also attracts more litter.

While some plant pots (grey and brown) may be recyclable, they need to be taken to a garden centre that has the proper facilities, including some local nurseries.

Larger companies like B&Q and Dobbies have their own return/ recycling schemes. Thank you for your understanding.
