Veolia Environmental Services (Nottinghamshire County Council’s waste management contractor) is planning a New Year gift for the Fire Fighter’s Charity, through its Christmas ‘Tree-cycling’ campaign.

Christmas trees can be taken to any of the 14 Nottinghamshire Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRCs) to be recycled, where for every 50 tonnes of Christmas trees and other green waste received until the end of January, Veolia Environmental Services will donate £100 to the Fire Fighter’s Charity.

Kevin Parker, Regional Communications Manager for Veolia Environmental Services, said: “If one of your New Year’s Resolutions is to be greener, then our tree-cycling campaign is a fantastic way to begin.

“You’ll also be helping a very worthwhile charity at the same time.”

Coun Tom Pettengell, Chairman of Nottinghamshire County Council, added: “I’m really grateful for Veolia’s support for a very deserving charity and I hope that Notts residents will do their bit to help us raise as much money as we can.”
