Making a pledge to recycle is a good idea to do at any time but if you take part this year you’ll also be helping raise funds for When You Wish Upon a Star, the Nottinghamshire County Council’s chairman’s chosen charity
New Year reduce, reuse, recycling campaign launches in Notts helping to raise funds for Nottinghamshire County Council Chairman's Charity When You Wish Upon a Star.
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 save these precious natural resources. We can all play a part in this by reducing our waste, reusing where possible and recycling.
Councillor Mike Quigley, Chairman of Nottinghamshire County Council:
To be in with the chance to win a hamper of environmentally friendly goodies to help you make your eco switch a little easier in 2022
In January 2022 Nottinghamshire residents are again encouraged to make a pledge to reduce their waste, reuse wherever possible and recycle correctly.
We are donating £1 for each pledge made throughout January and will be sharing a range of them here and across social media.
If you would like to share your pledge too, please use the #NottsRecycles
By making a pledge you will help to raise money for the chosen charity of Councillor Mike Quigley Nottinghamshire County Council Chairman
When You Wish Upon a Star has a simple mission, to grant the Wishes of children living with a life threatening illness. Whether the wish is to swim with dolphins or to be a fairy princess for a day, When You Wish Upon a Star are able to grant these wishes and enable the child, and their family, to put their illness on hold as they have fun and create precious memories.
Thank you to everyone who has made a pledge
