Recycle Your Plastic, Reduce Land-Fill and Raise Money for Charity!

The Matthew Project is raising awareness of 'Green' issues by encouraging individuals across Norfolk to recycle their plastic materials. Jon Hammond, a Matthew Project volunteer, came up with the Tops 4 Charity and Plastic 4 Charity ideas and has been raising money for The Matthew Project over the last 18 months.

Put simply, Tops 4 Charity and Plastic 4 Charity recycle your waste plastic from home, reduce land-fill and raise money for The Matthew Project!

Take a look at the web pages throughout this section to see how you can get involved.
