Nottinghamshire County Council Go Green 30 day challenge

Nottinghamshire County Council:

Notts Recyclers we need YOU to sign up to our Go Green 30 day challenge and help fight climate change

Take part in a month-long campaign set to inspire you to reduce, reuse and recycle more.

The challenge kicks off on 1 September and will coincide & celebrate Zero Waste Week (6-10 September) and National Recycle Week (20-26 September).

Anyone can get involved with the challenge, individuals, families, couples, friends or work colleagues – the more the merrier, everyone is welcome to take part.

When you sign up to the challenge you will receive a daily dose of green goodness straight to your inbox with tips and challenges to complete throughout September.

Each challenge will show you how you can help make a difference at home in your everyday life, giving us all the chance to break old habits and form new, green ones.

We don’t need to completely change our lifestyles to make an impact, small actions will make a BIG difference, which is why the Nottinghamshire Recycles Go Green 30-day challenge is a great way to get involved and help protect the environment for the future. If we all try to adopt small everyday swaps it really adds up and will help, make a big difference not just in Nottinghamshire but across the country.

There are lots of fantastic competitions with PRIZES to be won to keep you motivated throughout the challenge, what’s more there are extra prize draws if you get involved and share updates about the challenge on social media using #NottsRecycles.

So, get your friends, neighbours and colleagues to sign up too, support each other on the journey and let’s paint the county green this September.

A52 Nottingham junctions update

Highways England has updated its A52 Nottingham junctions project page :

Planned work at our site compound

What’s happening?

In mid August we’ll start work to widen the entrance of our site office, which is used as the base for our A52 Nottingham junctions upgrade scheme.

Located just off the A52 close to Gamston roundabout, regular deliveries are already made to the compound. By widening the entrance we can make sure the large vehicles we expect to deliver goods to site in the future will be able to move off the main road quickly and safely, minimising disruption to the flow of traffic and pedestrians.

When will the work start?

We’ll start work on 16 August 2021:

  • from 16 August: day time work within the compound boundary, to the edge of the footpath
  • from 23 August: some night time work and lane one will be closed for part of the night
  • from 26 August: day time work within the compound boundary, to the edge of the footpath, which we expect to last for two weeks

How will the work affect road users and pedestrians?

To minimise disruption, we’ll keep the footpath at the front of the site open while we work. To keep everyone safe, we’ll make sure the path is monitored when work is underway.

We’ll also put up new signs around our work area to remind everyone to look both ways when crossing or using the site entrance.

Additionally, all vehicles using the compound will be restricted to left turn in and left turn out.
