Santa has been in touch with Veolia and Haringey Council to find out which children living in Haringey have been recycling correctly this year, so he can put their names on the #NiceRecyclersList.
To ensure no child is missed, Veolia and Haringey Council are asking children to take part in their #NiceRecyclersList competition. Kids are invited to write a letter to Santa to tell him about their recycling deeds for the year, the ways they’ve positively contributed to the environment, and how they'll help to protect the future of our planet. All letters will be shared with Santa, but the most inspiring one will also feature in the local newspaper.
Veolia carries out recycling and waste services and street cleansing activities on behalf of Haringey Council. Throughout the year, thousands of local children have shown their love for recycling by putting the right things in the right bins, and waving at recycling and waste collectors while they worked to keep the community clean. Santa wants to celebrate all of these children for recycling regularly and doing their bit to look after the local environment.
To enter the competition, grown-ups are asked to tweet a picture of their child's letter to @VeoliaUK and @haringeycouncil, with #NiceRecyclersList. They should also include the child’s name, age and the area they live. The competition will run from 23 November to 4 December and Veolia will work with Santa to choose the most creative letter to be published in the local newspaper.
Paul Peters, Veolia’s Senior Contracts Manager in Haringey, said:
“Our crews see lots of little recyclers during their daily rounds, all of which have enthusiastically put out their recycling bins for collection every week. We want to ensure that Santa knows how sustainable Haringey children are, so they can be added to the #NiceRecyclersList this year. We look forward to receiving the letters, where kids can put in their own words how much they love recycling and tell Santa all about their wishes for a better environment. We hope this indoors activity will help spread some Christmas cheer, and we wish everyone in Haringey a safe and Merry Christmas.”
