Greene King pubs in Bury have launched a new recycling campaign to help raise money for a cancer charity.

The campaign "Tub2Pub" launched on January 1 and will run until February 11, and pubs will accept clean and empty confectionery tubs, biscuit tubs and cracker tubs.

In this time period, people can bring in their tubs and hand them into a member of staff at the bar or welcome station.

After February 11, all tubs will be collected and taken to a plastic reprocessing centre where they will be shredded before being sold onto plastic manufacturers.

A spokesperson for Greene King Pubs said: "Greene King is collecting tubs on behalf of DCW Polymers and co-cre8 who are responsible for the collection, recycling, and sale of the plastic tubs.

“All tubs will be collected in February 2024 from each drop-off location across a couple of days.

“Routes will be carefully planned for the collection drivers to help minimise the amount of road miles.”
