Recycling to help others

posted Jan 7, 2018, 12:19 PM by kathy Freeston
To start 2018 Nottinghamshire residents are encouraged to make a New Year’s resolution that they CAN keep – by recycling drinks cans and plastic bottles to help raise money for local people who are being cared for by Nottinghamshire Hospice, Nottinghamshire County Council Chairman’s chosen charity.  The money raised will be used to help those with terminal and life-limiting illnesses, their families and carers.

Throughout January, Veolia (Nottinghamshire County Council’s waste management contractor) are donating £2 for every tonne of recyclable plastic bottles and cans collected from kerbside recycling bins. 750 tonnes of plastics bottles and cans were collected in 2016, and Veolia have promised to donate an additional £500 bonus to the charity if the total reaches 1,000 tonnes in January this year.
