Last chance to pledge and raise money for a local charity

Last chance to pledge and raise money for a local charity

This January local residents in Notts are being asked to make a recycling pledge which will help boost recycling and raise funds for Nottinghamshire County Council Chairman's chosen charity My Sight Nottinghamshire. In return for each pledge made during January Veolia are donating £1 to the charity. 


So far this month over 450 residents have made their pledges and by doing so have helped to raise money for a local charity that is dedicated to improving the lives of people living with sight loss in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire. Why not join them, make your pledge and help us to get  to 1000 pledges?





To make a pledge visit In return for each pledge made during January Veolia are donating £1 to the charity. Pledgers can also opt in for the chance to win an eco hamper worth over £100 to help start their reduced waste journey this year. 

Perhaps you’ll pledge to:

  • Upcycle old clothes rather than throwing them away, by using the fabric to create new clothes or household items -  like Karen from Newark & Sherwood
  • Buy as many vegetables as possible with reduced packaging and to start growing your own to reduce waste further - like Yvonne from Mansfield
  • Pay more attention to what can and cannot be recycled in Nottinghamshire and to think before putting things in the bin and check whether things can be recycled - like Natalie from Gedling
  • Use more sustainable packaging for your packed lunch at work - like Ian from Broxtowe

Once they have decided on their pledge Veolia and Nottinghamshire County Council are asking all participants to share their pledge online using the hashtag #NottsRecycles and encourage more people to take part.


We can all play a part in saving our environment by reducing our waste, reusing where possible and recycling.
Join with me this January in making a Notts Recycles pledge, and in return Veolia will donate £1 for every pledge to my chosen charity for the year My Sight Nottinghamshire.
Councillor Stuart Wallace
Chairman of Nottinghamshire County Council
We are delighted to be part of Veolia's Notts Recycles campaign this year. Every penny we receive from pledges will go towards helping support blind and partially sighted people in the local community. We are truly grateful to both Councillor Wallace and Veolia for their support of My Sight Nottinghamshire.
Lydia Fenton
Fundraising Manager for My Sight Nottinghamshire
After a year like no other, I'd like to ask everyone in Notts to make a Notts Recycles pledge for a brighter future. While spending more time at home we've all appreciated and recognised the benefits we are afforded by having our green spaces, clean water, trees and wildlife around us. Let's look to the future and help save these precious natural resources.
