The Abbey Playgroup, Arbroath, has signed up to TerraCycle’s Brigade recycling programme which will see the group collect baby-wipe packaging and in return help raise money for the playgroup.
The scheme will also help teach children about environmental responsibility and the reuse of waste materials.
Normally, the packaging would be sent to landfill, but instead a designated recycling bin has been set up to collect the empty baby-wipe packets and wrapping from multi-packs.
The bin can be found in the alleyway to the side of the Old and Abbey Church, West Abbey Street, where the Abbey playgroup is located. Parents and the public are invited to drop off their packaging Monday to Friday between 8.30 a.m. and 12 noon.
