MBA Polymers encourages youngsters to recycle at company fun day


Earlier this month we held a fun day at our Worksop site to say a big thank you to our employees for their hard work. Organised by MBA’s Sue Thompson and Faye Wicks, the event was a big hit with all the family, with attractions including a tug of war, football, face-painting, bouncy castles, mini fairground rides and a land train running laps of a local field. Importantly, it was also a prime occasion to encourage young people to get involved with recycling and understanding the values of resources and how this helps protect the environment.

Children traded plastic bottle tops for tickets to attractions, with one child bringing over 1,800 tops to be swapped. They also created some fantastic bottle top art. It was a great way to inspire youngsters to think about recycling while having fun.

Speaking to local newspaper the Worksop Guardian, Wicks said: “The kids really got into it, and we showed them in a fun way that recycling does have its rewards. We believe it’s a really important message, and one we’re keen to keep delivering.”

MBA would like to extend the invitation to the wider public next year and engage families throughout the local community with recycling while explaining the important job we’re doing in keeping materials in use, diverting waste from landfill and contributing to the circular economy.
