Although the smallest group in the area, the group in Kirby Misperton have a number of initiatives under its belt, including:
- The recycling corner recycles crisp packets, cosmetic items, ink cartridges, bottle tops, dental products and even mascara wands which are donated to Pickering Hedgehog Rescue, used to remove ticks from their spiny patients! There is also a box for fabrics to donate to the local Morsbags project.Crisp packets are the most frequently donated items, with 16 kg of crisp packets collected so far. Collection of pet food pouches is also very significant. Check out the TerraCycle website www.terracycle.com if you wish to set up a scheme near you. Otherwise contact us on RyedaleEG@hotmail.com.
- A fruit juice scheme allows otherwise unwanted apples and pears to be made into juice and sold to raise money for local causes.
