Make New Year recycling pledge

WITH the New Year almost here, Hucknall residents are being urged to make a pledge to recycle as one of their resolutions.

Veolia Environmental Services (Notts County Council’s waste contractor) which runs recycling centres such as the one on Wigwam Lane, Hucknall, is encouraging residents to pledge a New Year recycling resolution via the Christmas tree paper bauble (available at point of purchase through Nottinghamshire’s Christmas tree retailers) or through the website

Kevin Parker, regional communications manager for Veolia said: “Recycling should increasingly be a priority. The more we can recycle, the less waste we need to send to landfill and the more we can reduce carbon emissions and combat climate change.” He added: “Please get involved and make recycling a resolution you keep all year round.”

Notts County councillor Richard Butler (Con) said: “People can sometimes be unenthusiastic about recycling due to the amount of time they think it will take. However, all Nottinghamshire residents can recycle a range of materials easily from their home.”
