Lab Plastic Recycle Scheme

Introduced in 2020, our Central Technical Services started collecting the plastic recycling waste from pick-up points around the SLS complex. Any clean, dry and millable plastic, even coloured plastic can be recycled. It must be clean, contamination free and dry.

Terracycle Scheme

Life Sciences have collection points for the recycling of crisp packets and oral products (toothpaste tubes and plastic toothbrushes) as part of the Terracycle scheme.

TerraCycle offers free recycling programs funded by brands, manufacturers, and retailers around the world to help us collect and recycle our hard-to-recycle waste.
