We collect plastic milk bottle tops for New Forest Mencap. Many organisations are involved in collecting for us:- New Milton Infants, New Milton Juniors, Tiptoe Primary, Pennington Junior School, Lymington Junior School, Cardiac Intensive Care Unit at Southampton General Hospital. Moorwood Cottage Nursing Home in Chandlers Ford, British American Tobacco Company Southampton, RPS Planning and Development Abingdon Oxford, Firesafe Solutions Bishops Waltham, King Somborne Church, Sway church, St Saviours Church, Brockenhurst, South Baddesley infants School, Lymington and District Multiple Sclerosis Group and many more kind individuals…

If you drink milk and would like to help support us – please start collecting your plastic milk bottle tops. NO other tops please, ensure they are washed and any foil inserts. The milk bottle tops are collected by a recycling company, melted down, and turned into pellets and sold back into UK industry and made into Fence posts, Traffic cones, Plant pots, Gas pipes and Mesh around new trees. If you put them into your household waste they are not recycled and are incinerated at Marchwood. You can help us raise money for our Charity by either:
posting them to:

New Forest Mencap, Nedderman Centre, Marryat Road, New Milton, Hants BH25 5NY

Or deliver them to the Nedderman Centre Car Park, we have four wheelie bins to the left of the green textile bin.  As at 4th November 2019 it is currently not possible to take any milk bottle tops to APR, Eastleigh.  We will let you know if this situation changes.

Please telephone 01425 621893 if more information is required

Many thanks for supporting us


A recent addition to the car park at the Nedderman Centre is a glass recycling bin. While this does not provide any direct income for New Forest Mencap, we welcome this addition to our recycling facilities provided by he NFDC. You can recycle glass bottles and jars (and any clothing etc. at the adjacent textile bin).
Please remember that if you are coming to recycle in your car please DO NOT use the car park but park in the layby opposite the bins. We ask this because we do not want the car park surface to deteriorate – it is expensive to maintain.
