FOLLOWING a request from a local family, The Hub at St Peter's in Peterchurch has signed up to become a Terracycling Collection Centre for empty toothpaste tubes, used toothbrushes and their associated packaging.

Passers-by, local residents, visitors to The Hub Café, library users and churchgoers are now able to dispose of their dental detritus when they visit The Hub, a community development project based at St Peter's in Peterchurch.

Each time the collection box is full, it will be collected by Colgate® as part of the company's Oral Care Recycling Programme which recycles products and packaging and prevents them from ending up in landfill.
