Did you know that the Philipstown Community Hub is part of the Terracycle Programme?
This means that we are a collection point for certain waste products to be recycled.
We are enrolled in the Glad and Oral care collection programmes.

The products for the glad programme can be any brand (incl regular takeaway containers). They must be clean.
The oral programme will accept any brands also.
We need to send our first Glad shipment off in a couple of weeks. Please bring in anything that qualifys.
