How COG Youth Services Benefits

Every item we recycle through Terracycle is awarded points and these points can then be converted to a financial amount and donated to a Charity or Not-For-Profit of the registered collectors choice. As a Not-For-Profit organisation, we use our points to support our youth groups across Leicester and Leicestershire. If you would prefer to support another cause then you can go to the Terracycle website and either register your school or find another local collector to donate your items to. Each point is currently valued at 1p.
