Aluminium foil

The churches work together to collect foil, which is taken to the Queen Elizabeth II Activity Centre in Manor Farm Country Park - they sell the foil for recycling, and raise money for equipment. Foil is collected in various churches, and there are publicly-available bins at the Palmerston Avenue car park in central Fareham, and at Immaculate Conception Roman Catholic church in Stubbington.

Please make sure that the foil is clean, and is actually foil not shiny plastic! If in doubt, use the 'scrunch' test - scrunch it in your hand and release it, if it stays scrunched it is probably aluminium, if it doesn't it definitely isn't.
