A BIG thank you to all our wonderful volunteers, Corsham Town Council, Wiltshire Council, Martingate Co-op and everyone who has brought their recycling to the Corsham Recycling Hub over the last year and helped to make it such a success.

Over the past 12 months, the Hub has raised £1,946.98 for charity and 1,724 large bin bags’ worth of waste has been recycled.
