Recycling

Isle of Man Creamery says it has almost quadrupled the weight of its cartons that are recycled in a year.

The Creamery said: ‘During the first 6 months of 2022 we have recycled 16,480kg of cartons, a huge increase from 4,720kg in the same period in 2021.’

This has been done through setting up recycling points around the island and offering doorstep recycling through Recyclecollect.im and the Creamery Club for delivery customers.
