Sainsbury’s recycling area
- Sam (22nd Feb 2021  23:24:33)

Hello folks, I just wondered if anyone happens to know why the recycling area in Sainsbury’s carpark is not in use and whether this is a temporary thing? I meant to find someone to ask when I was in the shop today but I forgot! In the meantime do you know of anywhere else locally that one can take plastics such as yogurt pots, ice cream tubs etc that can’t go in our household recycling bins? Many thanks in advance.

I thought there was only two refuse bins one for recycling black green for waste. The stuff you mentioned surly go’s in the recycling bin or if not in the rubbish bin.

The household recycling collection is for plastic bottles only, no other plastic should be put in the black recycling bin.

Full details of what can go in recycling can be found here -

More than just bottles, but no mention either way for yoghurt pots.

At the Sainsburys recycling area there are large skips that take glass bottles, cardboard, paper and plastics such as yoghurt containers, etc not allowed in the household wheelie bins.
I don't know why it is currently closed.

You’re right C, they only want plastic bottles in our kerbside recycling bins. To Confused - no you can’t put yogurt pots etc in our recycling bins and I do not want to put them in the rubbish bin. On the recycling section on the main hants.gov website there is a drop down list of items and it tells you how you can dispose of them. Sadly they don’t take yogurt pots etc as it’s something to do with the mixture of plastics so they suggest putting them in your rubbish bin. I hate throwing away plastic so luckily there is a receptacle in the Sainsbury’s recycling area that specifically takes yoghurt pots, margarine tubs, plastic food packaging etc so I collect those things separately and take them there. But now that seems to be out of order. I’m just trying to avoid single use plastics going to landfill or incineration, as should everyone.

I have heard and read via other sources that they may be changing the people who collect it but have a period before the change over takes place so to avoid the bins being filled and no one taking responsibility to empty them, they have sealed it off for now.

As the notes on the barriers say they are 'sorry for the inconvenience'.

l queried this on Friday with a member of staff as he was cordening it off. Sainsburys have changed contractor and the new one is not starting for 6. or 7 weeks. No idea where our nearest alternative is.
Put mine back in the garage for another time. Doe anyone still take the plastic milk bottle tops for a charity. ?

Please feel free to bring your plastic milk bottle tops to the Liphook Day Centre on Tuesdays between 10.00 am and 1.00 pm, We have a bucket dedicated to this collection

Thank you

At Liphook Peak Day Centre they have started to collect clean green and blue milk bottle tops to help raise funds for the Air Ambulance details can be found on the Liphook Day Centre Facebook page.
At present the Centre is only open on Tuesday mornings from 11a.m;.-1p.m for the sale of eggs but am sure it is 0.k.to take them there at that time if you are able to.

Thank you for the information Marge and Dee. Nice to know the facility is not disappearing for good and will hopefully be back before too long.
