What’s not to like really, you are essentially giving vital help back into the community, the best recycling I have come across in and around Thurrock, as far as I know, and the staff are out of this world awesome , they also put on the most awesome events that seriously family friendly, what’s not to love about them, if I could , I would fund them until the day I leave this life .
