Bourne Toys is recycling milk bottles for Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance
When Melanie Barber asked for plastic waste to be dropped at her family's toy shop, she could hardly have imagined the response.
But thanks to people diligently saving plastic milk bottle tops through to crisp packets, she's now helping to raise hundreds of pounds for charities.
Earlier this month, one-and-a-half tonnes of plastic milk bottle tops and bottles that had been dropped off at Bourne Toys were taken for recycling with the help of Enva Plastic Recycling, also based in Bourne. Each tonne of plastic raises £250 for the Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance charity.
