Crisp Packet Recycling

Turn your empty, used crisp packets into life-saving funds for the Air Ambulance Kent Surrey Sussex!


Crisp Packets

Our fantastic volunteer and fundraiser, Adam Hunter, has initiated another amazing recycling scheme – this time for crisp packets! Innovative recycling company Terracycle® have partnered with crisp giants Walkers® to create a free recycling scheme in which empty packets can be turned into funds for charities! All brands of crisp packet can be accepted, including the multipack outer packaging*. So why not start collecting now and make a real difference!

*All brands of crisp packet including supermarket own brands can be accepted. Outer packaging for multi packs can also be accepted.
 

You can collect your packets at home, at work or at school.

 

At home:

Simply fill an old box or bag with your used crisp packets and once you have reached a minimum weight of 8kg (roughly 1400 empty bags) simply contact us at community@aakss.org.uk to request a free UPS label** that will be emailed to you and then can be used to send your collected packets directly to Terracycle.

**Each UPS label can only be used once so please email for a new one each time. If this is not done, Terracycle will be unable to accredit this and Air Ambulance Kent Surrey Sussex will NOT receive any funds for them.
 

At work:

Why not get your whole workplace involved? Complete the form below to register and recieve an 'AAKSS Recycle Pack' that includes posters that can be displayed in your work place.

Once you have collected a minimum of 8kg of emply packets, contact us at community@aakss.org.uk for a free UPS label** that will be emailed to you. It can then be used to send your collected packets directly to Terracycle.
