Household items you can recycle

​​​Bicycles

The Jersey England Parent Support group are looking for all types of bicycles that can be repaired (if necessary) and sold to raise funds. You can contact them on +44 (0) 1534 734988.

Books

It is better to pass books on to someone else through car boot sales or charity shops.

If they cannot be reused, paperbacks can be recycled in the paper recycling banks.

Hardbacks must have the covers removed before the pages are put into the paper recycling banks. The hardback covers can be recycled in the cardboard recycling banks.

Brita water filters

Brita water filters are currently seeking an economic means of return of the Brita cartridges from the Channel Islands to the UK which is proving to be very challenging.

As soon as accurate details are available these will be added to the Brita website. In the meantime, cartridges can be returned to Brita. Note that Brita are unable to reimburse postage costs.
