RUBBER BAND COLLECTION RELIEF
While rubber can be recycled, it’s a bit more complicated than tossing it into your average recycle bin. There is actually a specific, separate process for rubber recycling.
Are rubber bands compostable? Technically, yes! Rubber comes from the sap of a rubber tree, and the rule with composting is: If it was once alive, it can be composted. However, rubber takes a long time to break down or biodegrade, sox it is best to reuse rubber bands rather than to toss them in the compost bin.
Don’t throw them out! Span aims to collect Rubber bands and forward them onto organisations, schools and social enterprises that are able to reuse them.
HEARING TEST AND HEARING AID REPAIRS
