Hello, let’s chat how to recycle inflatables today!

Summer has officially come to a close in Scotland.  All the schools have resumed, and the beaches are quiet, despite being filled with happy kids, fish and chips, ice-creams, buckets and spades, and lilos and rubber rings just a few weeks previously.

If you have kids, or even if you don’t have kids, you may have amassed a collection of inflatables over the summer.  From lilos to rubber rings, from paddling pools to inflatable dinghies, you may have some in your shed or garage or stuffed under the stairs.

The trouble is that these items are delicate and don’t always withstand one summer’s worth of use, or three seasons of storage.  If your inflatable has a puncture that can’t be repaired or is intended for the bin, then don’t bin it – it can be recycled rather cleverly!

The clever people at Wyatt and Jack are having an inflatables amnesty this summer, whereby you can post them your inflatables that would have otherwise gone in the bin – and they will work their magic, turning them into rather funky bags, like the one below:

If you are an Isle of Wight local, they will collect it from you, otherwise, you can post your inflatable to them at:

Wyatt & Jack Inflatable Amnesty

Unit 7 – Weavers Yard

Lane End


Isle Of Wight

PO35 5US

Wyatt and Jack will kindly refund your postage for you, so recycling your inflatable will cost you nothing, and taking all the hard work out of how to recycle inflatables!

They are also appealing for coastal businesses, cafes, and beach shops to act as collection points for the amnesty – if that’s you or know anyone who fits the bill, then drop Wyatt and Jack an email on hello@wyattandjack.com

Happy recycling!
