A DENTAL practice in Nailsea has become one of the first businesses to support a new recycling scheme in aid of the Alzheimer’s Society.

MG Dental Care, in Clevedon Road, has signed up to become a collection point for the Tassimo coffee machine t-discs and foil packaging.

The waste has previously been sent to landfill but Tassimo is now encouraging people to recycle the products and for each unit of waste collected 2p is donated to charity.

The collection box can be accessed at the practice from 8am-5pm on Monday to Thursday and from 9am-2pm on Friday.
