The Lincolnshire Poacher on Mansfield Road has become the first pub in the area to offer the opportunity to take in, and recycle, your empty crisp packets.

All crisp packets currently carry the ‘not recyclable’ tag, but according to manager, Andy Walters, this is no longer the case.  “It’s thanks to my colleague Siobhan Harris that we’ve been able to join the international operator TerraCycle to not just recycle packets sold in our bar but also welcome like-minded individuals to bring theirs in to add to the pot.

“It’s really worthwhile. With each 2 kg we collect £2 goes to charity.  And the recycler says their worldwide efforts have already raised over $44 million for charities in the participating countries,” he says.

The Lincolnshire Poacher have opted to support Maggie’s for the time being, a local charity offering support to anyone whose life has been impacted by cancer. Earlier this year they raised close to £500 for the same charity with a pub cricket match at Forest Rec, followed by a BBQ back at the pub. You can find out more about the charity here.
