Public and International Affairs with Science Committee

We are encouraging WIs to collect crisp packets and tablet blister packs for recycling. The crisp packets can be sent to Terracycle with the added benefit of raising some cash for your WI.

We are no longer collecting blister packs.


If your WI does not collect either of these they can be dropped of WI House for recycling.
