With our In It To Win It scheme, we’re rewarding estates for recycling: the more you recycle, the more prizes you win for your community. It is easy for estates to win rewards just by recycling correctly and making sure the right thing goes in the right bin. 

Look out for the 'It’s got to be in it to win it' sticker, which will show the bins included in the scheme. 



Most estates with shared recycling bins can take part in this scheme; see if your estate qualifies using our map below or view a list of eligible estates.

We want residents to suggest how they would like to see these rewards spent to benefit the community. Please use the link below to submit any suggestions for prizes for your estate.

Suggest prizes

Reward options could include:

  • community festivals and workshops
  • sports and play kits 
  • benches and gardening tools
  • wildlife projects

Then, we’ll ask the residents of each estate to vote on how they would like the rewards spent on their estate.  

Putting the wrong things in your recycling will reduce the prize earned. Check what you can and can’t recycle.
