NPT Homes have joined forces with NPTCBC to offer a series of recycling roadshows to tenants

NPT Homes have joined forces with NPTCBC to offer a series of recycling roadshows to tenants living in sheltered schemes across the Borough.

The roadshows have offered tenants support and guidance to encourage the recycling of waste, ensuring they were stocked up with all the necessary equipment while receiving lots of handy tips and advice.

Schemes competed against each other for the crown of best recyclers with Cysgodfa in Tonna coming out on top for their effective system of recycling. Maeshir in Glynneath, Riverside Court in Pontardawe and Godrecoed in Cadoxton were also highly commended for their efforts.

As part of the roadshow scheme managers were also encouraged to nominate recycling ambassadors within their schemes. Tudor Nicholas from Godrecoed, Bryn Rees from Maes Y Darren, Roy Osmond from Llwynon and Jan Williams from Maeshir were some of the tenants identified as recycling ambassadors, who help other tenants at their schemes to go green and get recycling.

All tenants who were involved with the roadshow had the pleasure of meeting Greenbob Squarebox, NPTCBC’S recycling mascot, and certificates were presented to the best recycling scheme and ambassadors to commemorate their efforts.

Tudor Nicholas a tenant from Godrecoed found the roadshow really useful, he said:

“The recycling roadshow organised by NPT Homes was really informative. I have been recycling for a while now, but the session taught me the reasons why we all should be doing it and how easy it is for everyone to embrace.

I am pleased to have been nominated as recycling ambassador for Godrecoed and will continue to help support people to recycle as much as possible.”

Amy Hines from NPT Homes added:

“It was a real positive for the recycling team at NPTCBC to join us on our recycling roadshow and tenants were armed with all the equipment that they need to make recycling really straight forward. Choosing recycling ambassadors in each of the schemes we visited has given tenants ongoing support on their recycling journey.”
