Worcestershire County Council in the UK is launching a campaign to promote recycling.
The campaign aims to encourage residents across the area to recycle more cans and plastics. During the month-long initiative, every aerosol can, plastic bottle, pot, tub and tray (excluding black plastic) that people put in their recycling bins will help to raise money for Acorns Children’s Hospice.
Councillor Tony Miller, the county’s cabinet member with responsibility for the environment, said: “The school holidays can often show an increase in recycling, particularly if the weather is hot and families are having lots of barbecues. So, during August we are asking residents to recycle for Acorns and help raise money for this worthwhile charity.”
Worcestershire Council Country has partnered with Severn Waste Services, who will make a donation to the hospice at the end of the campaign.
