Mpact Recycling is terminating its kerbside household collection programme with effect from 13th December 2019.

“The kerbside programme was initially established to collect magazines and newspapers from households and the famous green ‘Ronnie bag’ has made a positive impact on the environment; as well as created a culture of recycling for residents since the programme began almost 30 years ago. However, as the recycling industry has evolved over time it has become necessary for Mpact to make changes to its collection processes,” says John Hunt, MD, Mpact Recycling.

Mpact Recycling is committed to creating opportunities for recycling. We encourage you to take advantage of our Ronnie Recycler schools & communities programme and to support the other collectors in your area. We will also continue to back the municipalities and the various separation at source programmes they are running.

The business has been deeply invested in the recycling industry for over 50 years. We will continue innovating and creating new mechanisms to enable people to participate in recycling to make a difference.
