Turning waste into cash for hospital

Posted onPosted on 4th Mar

Residents in Nottinghamshire recycled so much in January that £1,836 was raised as part of the Veolia Recycle for Charity Campaign for Nottingham Children’s Hospital, based at Queen’s Medical Centre.

Throughout January, Veolia — Nottinghamshire County Council’s waste contractors — pledged to donate £2 for every tonne of recyclable plastic bottles and cans collected from kerbside recycling bins.

Coun Sue Saddington, council chairman, added: “This is a wonderful amount and will be well received.”

Wayne Draycott, treatment manager for Veolia, added: “We say a big thank you to all the recyclers of Nottinghamshire.”
