In It to Win It: rewarding estates for recycling

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. 

Congratulations to Abbey Orchard estate who have won £500 through the recycling reward scheme.

Residents have until Sunday 30 September to vote for how they would like the prize money to be spent. 

Vote for Abbey Orchard estate

Tachbrook Estate had until 20 August to vote for how they would like to see their £2000 recycling reward spent. Residents voted to spend their reward on a trip to the garden centre and afternoon tea for members of the 'Golden Group.' Thank you to all who voted.

1. Eligibility

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 (PDF, 138KB).

 

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

2. Prizes

We want residents to suggest how they would like to see these rewards spent to benefit the community.

 Suggest prizes

Reward options could include:

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

We’ll chat to the community about prizes they would like; when the estate wins a reward they can vote for the prize they want.

Check your progress

 

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