MACS is collaborating with social enterprise, Bryson Recycling as part of their Recycling Rewards Campaign.
The year-long initiative involves over 170,000 households across Northern Ireland and three partner businesses, Cherry Pipes in Dungannon, Encirc in Fermanagh and Huhtamaki in Lurgan.
As part of the initiative, households are encouraged to recycle as much as they can as for every tonne of glass, paper and plastic collected through Bryson Recycling’s kerbside boxes, £1 will be donated to MACS. The aim of the campaign is to increase recycling levels and promote local recycling which is better for the environment, creates local jobs and supports the economy.
We are pleased to launch another Recycling Rewards campaign, partnering with such a worthwhile charity. Through this initiative, we hope to raise awareness of the importance of recycling and its positive contribution to the communities we live and work. Encouraging recycling in households across NI will inspire children and young people in the same household to carry on the ethos when they move on. We are proud to partner with MACS NI, who provide vital services to our children and young people, ensuring they have a bright future.
Eric Randall, Director at Bryson RecyclingWe’re delighted to be the Recycling Rewards chosen charity for this year and the money raised will make a real difference to the work we do for our young people. Recycling is easy to do, it is so important to educate people on the impact it has on our local communities and the environment. We look forward to working with Bryson Recycling over the next year to spread the word and raise much needed funds for our work.
