Recycling Rewards initiative aims to encourage people to recycle more paper, glass and plastics and highlight the benefits of recycling high quality material. For every tonne of these materials collected through their kerbside box service, 3 local recycling partners have pledged to donate £1 to Children’s Heartbeat Trust.
Eric Randall, Director, said: “We launched Recycling Rewards, a new campaign encouraging more homes to recycle while raising vital funds for local charity.
“Working in partnership with three local recycling companies and five councils, we are boosting recycling rates through encouraging more households to avail of our kerbside box service with the added incentive that for every tonne of paper, plastics and glass recycled, one pound will be donated to a local charity - the NI Children’s Heartbeat Trust.“
Lynn Cowan, Fundraiser for NI Children’s Heartbeat Trust said: “We are delighted to be part of this innovative scheme. These vital funds enable us to support many children affected by congenital heart disease, and their families.”
Eric Randall added: “Recycling locally is better for the environment, creates local jobs and supports the local economy.”
