Press Release

From Wednesday 1st of November Nottinghamshire’s recycling centres, operated by Veolia (Nottinghamshire County Council’s waste contractors) switch to winter opening hours. The recycling centres will be open from 8am and close at 4pm until Wednesday 28th February. 
 
Richard Allen, Operations Manager for Veolia Nottinghamshire said: “Over the winter months the Recycling Centres in Nottinghamshire are open seven days a week during the core hours of 8am until 4pm.  We find these are the best times to suit residents as they take advantage of daylight to dispose of items.”
 
County Councillor John Cottee, Chairman, Communities and Place from Nottinghamshire County Council said: “Our Recycling Centres provide residents with the opportunity to dispose of, or recycle, many items quickly and efficiently”.

Tell Father Christmas your recycling good deeds
WIN a family ticket to Cinderella at Nottingham Playhouse!
 
The letter to Father Christmas is one of the best parts of Christmas and this year Veolia (Nottinghamshire County Council’s waste contractors) are wishing to hear from all ‘nice list’ recyclers in Nottinghamshire, and offering pantomime tickets in return for the best ‘recycling good deeds’ letter to Father Christmas.
 
The new festive competition seeks to hear from the county’s young recyclers, and the winner will be presented with their prize by the stars of Nottingham Playhouse’s glittering production Cinderella. 
 
Over the festive period we all produce roughly 30% more waste than during the rest of the year, that’s a lot of pop bottles, chocolate boxes and squirty cream cans! Nottinghamshire residents currently recycle on average 44% of their waste, but with the help of our mini recyclers the challenge is to encourage everyone to recycle even more this Christmas and ‘put the right thing in the right bin’. 
 
The letters don’t have to be long but they must be original and can feature any or all of the recyclable items in Nottinghamshire – cans, paper, cardboard, or plastic bottles and as much festive magic as wished. 
The letter template and competition terms and conditions can be picked up from schools, libraries, downloaded from: www.veolia.co.uk/nottinghamshire/FatherChristmasLetter  or requested by calling 0203 567 4392
 
Entries are welcome from children aged 5 to 11 by post or email until the strike of midnight on Monday 11 December.
