Notts Recycles Pledge

Notts Recycles Pledge


Over 1600 people took part in the Notts Recycles Go Green for September challenge this year.  That's 1600 Nottinghamshire residents who took action and made small changes in their daily lives to make a big difference in the fight against climate change.  

Now it's time to pledge your commitment to make those small changes, not just for one week, or one month but every day.


Make a pledge to reduce your waste, reuse wherever possible and recycle correctly.


I pledge...

  • ... to take my reusable cup for my take away coffee.

  • ... to put a bag in my bathroom to collect my recyclables.

  • ... to  not put plastic bags in my recycling bin.

  • ... to rinse out my jars and tins before I put them in my recycling bin.

  • ... to buy items with less packaging at the supermarket.

  • ... to make new recipes with leftover food.

  • ... to help my neighbour with their recycling.

  • ... to take my bags for life when I do my shopping.
