St Peter's Parish, Belper, Derbyshire

Jesus at the centre transforming our community


21.01.24. There are some changes to the things that St Peter’s Church can accept for recycling:

We can no longer accept confectionary wrappers or oral care products. In the past they have been sent to Terracycle for recycling but unfortunately they no longer accept these items.

St Peters can still recycle biscuit and cake wrappers and we can now accept Home and Laundry Care. They do not need to be washed out but they do need to be empty of contents and dry. Please see the posters below for items that can be recycled and please do not contaminate with items that will not be accepted.

recycling home and care

We can still accept biscuit/cake/confectionery wrappers, empty toothpaste tubes and old toothbrushes:


Any brand of empty toothpaste tube, plastic toothbrushes and electric toothbrush heads.


The outer wrapping from both sweet and savoury biscuits.


Crisp packets, plastic lids, baby food pouches or blister packs.

Crisp packets and other soft plastics can now be recycled at most supermarkets. Some only have small containers for their recycling so they ask that if you have a large number of crisp packets that they are taken to the store in a bin bag. They need to be free of crisps and flat (not scrunched up or wet).

Blister packs can be taken to the Derby Superdrug branch but they do ask that you do not take bulk donations - this, unfortunately, is the reason we have had to stop taking them at St Peter's.

Thank you to all you have used the recycling at St Peter's.
