Containers 4 Change

Many of you would already know about this 10c recycling of containers program. We have now set up an area in the clubhouse for collecting these 10c refundable containers.
You can bring them into the Centre if you don't wish to recycle them yourself.
Alternatively, if you wish to take them to your nearest C4C centre and have the funds directed to SCRDA, our C4C number is C10473173.
Happy recycling!
