I’m getting into recycling big time, you can often see me and my wife with several big bags of plastic bottles, glass bottles and jars, and tins and cans. Traipsing across town to our local Tesco where we recycle it all, it save our bin from being over flowing with rubbish and sometimes earns us a few extra clubcard points.
We’re that conscientious that we even wash them out before we take them to the recycling bank (which even take clothing, cardboard, bubble wrap etc). And now I have found you can even recycle your old blood monitors…
The Insulin Dependant Diabetes trust (IDDT) will take your old working blood meter, unopened insulin, unopened test strips and lancet and even unopened needles. IDDT is the UK arm of a not – for – profit Australian organisation insulin for life (IFL).All you need to do is package your items in a jiffy bag and send to Insulin Dependant Trust, P O Box 294, Northampton, NN1 4XS.
What do you do with your old magazines? Have you thought a local doctor surgery or dental surgery etc might like them? Reading in a surgery is known to help reduce stress about your appointment as it takes your mind off it, a thought worth thinking.
