Recycle for Charity this New Year – Nottinghamshire
Recycle for Charity this New Year!
Ey Up Notts, add an extra incentive to your recycling start to 2019 by making sure every plastic bottle and drinks can makes it into your recycling bin.
For every tonne of plastic bottles and drinks cans that are recycled in kerbside recycling this January, Veolia (Nottinghamshire County Council’s waste contractors), will donate £2 to the Chairman’s Charity – Nottingham Children’s Hospital. And as an added bonus if we reach 1000 tonnes an extra £500 will be donated to the charity!
So let’s get recycling folks and help make a difference to lives of others…
Give old toys, books, clothes and games a new lease of life
If Father Christmas brought some exciting new things down the chimney this Christmas, why not donate unused toys, books clothes and games to charity for others to enjoy them. Most local charity shops will accept good quality donations that are safe and suitable for reuse.
