Recycling is a family affair

No matter how big or small you are recycling is a big responsibility. Our new ‘We Love Stockport – Be Proud of Where You Live’ has sparked a new generation of recyclers doing their bit for their community and environment.

Local residents Ella and Abbie from Reddish are so passionate about keeping our planet clean and green that they have become the new faces for the campaign. To raise awareness of recycling you may see them and other local residents on our newly branded bin wagons across Stockport.

Abbie, said: “I help my mum and dad around the house by finding things that need recycling. I learnt that egg shells, plastic bottles and toilet rolls can all be recycled. Recycling is important because we need to help our planet for when me and my sister grow up.”

Cllr Sheila Bailey Stockport Council’s Cabinet Member for Communities and Housing, said: “I would like to thank Abbie and her sister Ella for getting involved in our campaign and helping their mum to recycle. It is important for future generations that we recycle as much as possible to benefit our communities and help our environment.”
