Plastics recycling charity - RECOUP - supported by Clean Tech (a Plastipak company) and Peterborough City Council, will be collecting clear plastic (PET) drinks bottles at the Perkins Great
The bottles will be se nt for reprocessing by Clean Tech in Helmswell, Lincolnshire. They are recycled into new drinks bottles and could be back on supermarket shelves within five weeks to six weeks of collection.
Recycling bins are at each water station on the course and at the start and finish points.
Please make sure you use the recycling bins to give the bottles the best chance to be recycled back into new bottles.
Any clear plastic drinks bottles can be placed into these recycling stations, not just the water bottles handed out to runners.
RECOUP will b e holding a Pledge2Recycle Plastics roadshow at the Embankment, which will be manned by recycling experts ready to answer any questions that visitors may have about plastic recycling.
The roadshow will also include information and examples about products that can be made from recycled plastic.
