Ever wondered if you could do something useful with your plastic milk bottle tops which can’t be recycled?
Well now you can use them and help the Chestnut Tree House children’s hospice!
The E.Y.E. Project (which stands for Eco Young and Engaged) has a collection point at St Paul’s Church in Chichester, where clean milk bottle tops can be dropped off into collection bins there.
They will then be passed to a recycling company, who pay an amount per ton which the church donates to the hospice, which cares for children with life-limiting conditions.
Since St Paul’s, in Churchside, started it has collected millions of bottle tops, and as well as giving about £230 to the hospice a year, around £300 is saved by the council in not having to pay for landfill.
At the recent Chichester Eco Summit, Chichester High School pupils Tilly and Alfie agreed to collect and deliver them to the church.
