Bin It For Good in Bulwell!

Bin It For Good

A new anti-litter project has been launched in Nottingham which encourages cleaner streets and also benefits local charities and good causes.

Nottingham City Council has joined forces with environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy and The Wrigley Company in a bid to keep the areas around Bulwell Market Place cleaner.

Nottingham City Council is taking part in the three-month project, which started on Monday 19 September, where litter bins have beentransformed into charity collection pots, featuring a new local charity or cause each month.

After engagement with residents in Bulwell, the chosen charities are:

  • Bulwell Forest Garden
  • Bulwell Toy Library
  • Bulwell Forest Football Club.

The more litter that goes into the bins and the less on the ground, the more money the featured charity of the month will receive! So if you live or visit Bulwell, make sure you put any litter in the bins and help local charities!

Recycle those Unusual Suspects!

Unusual Suspects

Nottingham City Council is working with Recycle Now to encourage residents to recycle more plastics bottlesaround the home following news that nationally households only recycle half of the ones they use.

We know that a lot of people are recycling their plastic bottles a lot of the time, which is great! But these figures show that clearly theres a lot more we can do. Some people may not realise how much of a difference they can make by recycling something as simple as a plastic bottle. They can be transformed again and again into not just more plastic bottles but in actual fact a huge number of items: from football shirts to picnic benches and fleece tops. It also reduces the amount being wasted and not being given a second life, which in turn is good for the environment.

Got the recycling bug? Be fantastic with your plastic recycling!

Here are a few tips to ensure you can confidently recycle all your plastic bottles:

  1. Firstly, make sure the bottles are empty;
  2. Give them a quick rinse (no need to remove labels though);
  3. Squash the bottles to save space in your recycling bin
  4. If youre on the go; pop your plastic bottle in a bag and recycle it when you get home rather than chucking it in a waste bin.

And the fun neednt stop at the usual suspects like fizzy drinks and milk bottles either. You may not realise that there are a huge number of plastic bottles and containers from around your home that can be recycled, including:

  • Shampoo bottles
  • Hand soap dispensers
  • Bathroom/kitchen cleaner bottles
  • Bleach bottles
  • Washing up liquid bottles
