Still time to join the fight against climate change and take on the Notts Recycles 30 day challenge

26 August 2021

Will You Step Up For The Go Green Challenge?

Last week Nottinghamshire County Council and Veolia launched the Notts Recycles ‘Go Green for September - 30 Day Challenge’ and, with less than a week to go until the start of the challenge, you are invited to join. 

The challenge kicks off on 1 September and will coincide and celebrate Zero Waste Week (6-10 September) and National Recycle Week (20-26 September).

Over 1,100 Nottinghamshire residents have stepped up to the challenge already and you can too! Each challenge will show you how you can help make a difference at home in your everyday life, giving us all the chance to break old habits and form new, green ones.

Learn how to be Bin Smart and recycle the right things, remind yourself how to reduce and reuse and understand how the 3Rs play a vital role in the fight against climate change.

Councillor Neil Clarke MBE, Chairman of Transport and Environment Committee said: “We’ve already had a fantastic number of residents sign up to the challenge – and there’s still a few days left until it starts so we are hoping to have even more. You can sign up to the challenge at any point throughout September – but signing up before the 1 September means you get a whole month of green goodness!”

Lea Hawkes, General Manager at Veolia, said: “We don't need to completely change our lifestyles to make an impact, small actions will make a big difference, which is why the Nottinghamshire Recycles Go Green 30-day challenge is a great way to get involved and help protect the environment for the future.”

There are lots of fantastic competitions with PRIZES to be won to keep everyone motivated throughout the challenge, what’s more there are extra prize draws if you get involved and share updates about the challenge on social media using #NottsRecycles.

So, get your friends, neighbours and colleagues to sign up too, support each other – or maybe try a bit of friendly competition to see who’s the greenest!
