New recycling text service launched by Valpak

A brand new text service has been launched by Valpak to help people locate their nearest recycling site and make it easier for them to find recycling facilities. The service will give out details of where you can recycle anything from plastic milk bottles to old toasters. Valpak chief executive Steve Gough said: I am thrilled to see the launch of yet another valuable recycling tool. Any service which raises awareness and improves access to recycling is to be welcomed. The new text service will be run via Valpaks recycling information website, Recycle-mores web manager Sam Blades said: The text service allows people to recycle materials on the move. If you are on holiday in the UK and want to keep up the good work you do at home, its now quick and easy to locate your nearest recycling site. It also gives those without internet access a convenient way to find recycling facilities. Users have to text waste or elec with a postcode to 60060 to receive the service. Texts to the number will cost 50p plus standard network charge.
