Busy Bees at Milton Keynes Hospital has signed up as one of the UK’s first public collection points for the JOHNSON’S® Baby Wipes Packaging Brigade.
People in the area can now drop off their used baby wipes packaging of all brands to the collection box at the nursery reception between 7am to 6.30pm, Monday to Friday.
A collection box is now in place at the Busy Bees Milton Keynes Hospital on Chadwick Drive for people to drop off their used baby wipes packaging of all brands. The nursery is visible on the public drop off location map and post code search facilities at www.terracycle.co.uk/en-UK/brigades/johnsons.html so visitors to the website can find their nearest drop off point.
The collection box is maintained by the nursery who will send in the collected baby wipes packaging to TerraCycle for recycling. For the weight of every empty pack collected by the community, two pence is earned for the nursery’s chosen charity, Milton Keynes Hospital.
All the collected material is then recycled into a variety of generic plastic products such as waste bins, garden paving and picnic tables meaning less new raw materials need to be produced.
Nursery Manager, Alana White, said: “We are delighted to act as one of the UK’s first public drop off locations for the JOHNSON’S® Baby Wipes Packaging Brigade.
“Busy Bees Milton Keynes Hospital already collected on the JOHNSON’S® Baby Wipes Packaging Brigade but this new public access collection point means the local community can help us save a far greater amount of baby wipes packaging from local landfill and raise more money which is great. So we encourage local people to drop off their used baby wipes packaging back to the collection box and tell their family and friends with children to do the same.”
