A pub chain across Bolton and nationally is asking people to donate plastic tubs to help raise funds for charity.

Greene King Pub and Carvery’s across the country have started a Tub2Pub campaign to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support by recycling thousands of plastic tubs.

Between January 1 and February 11, take your clean and empty tubs to any of the pubs and they will be taken for recycling, turned into products and all proceeds go to Macmillan.

Tubs can include confectionary tubs, biscuit tubs, and cracker tubs.

A spokesperson for Greene King said: “We’re all guilty of indulging in chocolate, sweets, and crackers over the festive period, and in the UK, we are buying tens of millions of these plastic tubs every year!

“Make sure your tubs don’t go to waste and bring your clean, empty plastic confectionery and cracker tubs to any Greene King managed site.”

The plastic containers will be collected from all pubs across the UK and sent to DCW Polymers to be shredded before being sold to manufacturers where they are made into recycled products.

All money raised from the sale of Tub2Pub plastics goes directly to Macmillan Cancer Support. 

The Bolton pubs involved include; The Beehive on Chorley New Road, Pine Tree Farm on Cutacre Lane and The Red Lion in Over Hulton.
