National Trust Goes Green!

The public are being invited to support the National Trust and a leading local recycling company to clean up some of the province’s top beauty sites and in doing so protect wildlife which is under serious threat from waste this summer.

Tyrone-based, Envirogreen Recycling, will work alongside the Trust on a number of clean-up days aimed at recovering recyclables which are currently littering and posing an increasing threat to the wildlife in the site areas.

The first event will take place at STRANGFORD Lough on Saturday August 13th from 10am-1pm and 2pm-4pm.

Members of the public can register for the clean-up by logging onto or alternatively emailing

With strong ‘green’ credentials, including, the Ulster Bank Best “Green Business of the Year”, Envirogreen is dedicated to helping develop conservation initiatives provincewide.

National’s Trust Fundraising Manager, Wendy Elliott, is delighted with the partnership:

“There is no doubt that the wildlife at our sites are under increased threat. The problem of waste – particularly from plastic and polystyrene – is getting much worse and we really need to be proactive in tackling this. Envirogreen are at the forefront of pioneering recycling techniques and are very proactive in exploring how we can process some of this waste.

“It’s a pleasure to work closely with such an innovative company. The clean up initiatives will help to conserve the sites for visitors but more importantly help protect the safety of our wildlife from the hidden danger of discarded waste such as plastic bags.”

Envirogreen Recycling MD, Conor Guy said;

“The National Trust is an exemplary institution and their outstanding conservation work enables visitors from all around the globe to enjoy the beauty of some of Northern’s Ireland most prestigious sites. However these sites are under threat and we want to do our bit to help protect them.”

Conor urged local people to join in the clean-up events which are taking place over the next number of weeks.

“Please join us on the clean-up campaign by registering to volunteer on our website. If you are unable to make the clean-up please show your support for this campaign by texting “GREEN” to 70003 and donate £3 to the National Trust to enable them to continue their excellent work. 100% of the donation goes to National Trust”.

The meeting point for the event this Saturday will be at Mount Stewart’s main car park.
