Green Peace - The Big Plastic Count

Big Count.png

Thank you to everyone who took part in 'The Big Plastic Count'. 

During 'The Big Plastic Count' Padiham Green threw away a total of 1,812 plastic items in one week, which is the equivilant of 94,224 plastic items in a year!


Whilst there is little we can do with some of the items we buy and this is what Green Peace is working to improve, we can look at our use of single-use plastics and our recycling habits. 


To find out what you can recycle in your recycling bins in Lancashire please follow the link below:

What can I recycle?

In Lancashire, usually anything with a number 1, 2 or 5 within the recycling triangle should go into your recycling bin.

What about my other non-recyclable plastics? 

Did you know that shoppers can now return all their soft plastic packaging to recycling points at every large Tesco store in the UK! There is one located at both Padiham and Burnley stores. Find out more here.
