Recycling scheme launched by Walkers, following public plastic packaging backlash

Recycling scheme launched by Walkers, following public plastic packaging backlash

People all over the UK, earlier this year, started to send their empty Walkers Crisp packets back to the company headquarters in protest to make Walkers more environmentally aware. 

Walkers, the giant of the crisp world, and based in Leicester, came under heavy fire from consumers who were not happy with the amount of litter that the crips packets produce. 

In response to the publics outrage, Walkers stated they are aiming to ensure all of their packaging is recyclable, decomposable or biodegradable by 2025. 

However, in the meantime the company has gone one step further and have partnered with TerraCycle to make it much easier for people to dispose of their packets in a more environmentally friendly way. 

The new recycling scheme is being launched by walkers on Monday, 17th December 2018 and will see collection points across the UK being introduced. 

Back in Torbay our nearest collection point is located at The Spires College, Westlands Lane, Torquay, TQ1 3PE and is accessible Monday-Friday 8-4. 

If you live to far from The Spires College a free courier service is available for those who are dedicated to recycling their rubbish.
