RESIDENTS unwanted bins have been recycled into a much-needed charity donation.
Warwick District Council donated £703 to the Myton Hospices from funds generated from the recycling of unwanted red boxes, green bins and broken containers collected after the introduction of the 123+ waste collection service last year.
WDC chairman Coun Sidney Syson said: “I have chosen to make this donation to Myton Hospices as their dedicated team carries out excellent work supporting patients and their families during very difficult times.
“My sincere thanks go to the residents of Warwick district whose unwanted recycling boxes and bins will provide funding for this important local charity and also to our contract services team for their efforts in collecting them from across the district.”
Chris Willmott, partnerships manager at The Myton Hospices, added: “A huge thank you to Warwick District Council and Coun Syson for making this wonderful donation possible – and to Coun Syson for again supporting Myton as her chosen charity of the year.
“Thank you also to the residents who made the recycling, and the donation, possible.
“We can’t do what we do without the support of the amazing communities and organisations across the region.
“So, a huge thank you on behalf of everyone at Myton, and, most importantly, from our patients and their loved ones whose lives this support makes such a difference to.”
