Bryson Recycling is encouraging homeowners in Carrickfergus to recycle for a good cause through their annual ‘£1 a tonne’ campaign.
For every tonne of material recycled through Bryson’s kerbside box collection from now until March 2015, £1 will be donated to the hospice rebuild at Somerton House in Belfast.
Bryson’s unique charity initiative has already donated over £40,000 to local charities during the past 10 years.
Eric Randall, director of Bryson Recycling, said: “We are delighted to be working with the NI Hospice to mark a special milestone of the ‘£1 a tonne campaign’ as they provide an invaluable service, which involves 24-hour support and care for patients with life-limiting conditions.
“Christmas is a time to celebrate with family and friends but we also tend to consume more, therefore producing more waste.
“Our advice this year is to think before you throw items away.
“Each year, we collect around 6,000 tonnes of recycled goods throughout this period and we would love to be able to donate up to 200 bricks for the hospice rebuild.
“This year’s ‘£1 a tonne campaign’ will help the environment and hospice build for a better future as construction continues on new premises to leave a lasting legacy for the local community.”
