Confectionery recycling collection points

We only have a few locations for confectionery recycling in Torfaen but do save them up and when passing Old Cwmbran, Trevethin or heading to Blaenavon, pop them in.

Cwmbran:
Croesyceiliog Comprehensive School, Woodlands Road, Cwmbran, NP44 2YB
28 Ventnor Road, Cwmbran, NP44 3JZ

Pontypool:
7 Talfaen Close, Trevethin, NP48JY

Blaenavon:
The Flour Girls, 67 Broad Street, Blaenavon, NP4 9NH

You can also give your wrappers to Little Green Refills.

Please see the image below for the accepted waste:

These wrappers will be sent off to Terracycle. Each collection point can opt to donate to a charity and this is calculated based upon the weight sent to Terracycle.

Please remember that unless you are actually passing or go to a collection point regularly that it’s much better to save up lots before making a special trip in order to reduce the carbon footprint of the donation.

If you would like to set up a community collection point, please pop me a message with your details to be added onto the list once you have your box ready. There is a separate page about how to go about setting your own collection point up. I popped a note through my neighbours’ letterboxes letting them know about the boxes outside my house and I’ve received a great reaction from it.
