      Hi Alison, we’re collecting HDPE type 2 plastic – it’s the type of plastic that milk bottles and lids are made from and has a 2 inside the recycling symbol. The workshop is located in the Balmakeith Industrial estate next to Curves and across from Ashers. At the moment it is open from 11am-5pm on a Thursday. Thanks for getting in touch.
