Recycling Rewards Scheme

Our recycling rewards scheme, Bin It To Win It, offers residents the chance to win one of 28 prizes awarded every month. Put the correct rubbish in your recycle bin and you could choose a reward worth at least £30.

There are lots of different rewards to choose from including:

  • vouchers to spend at local shops, leisure centres or local attractions
  • a bike maintenance course
  • tea with the Mayor

Bin it to Win it - past winners


Residents in houses are automatically entered into the monthly draw. Simply put your bin out on the edge of your property on the right collection day, and you will be entered into the draw.

If your address is randomly selected, we will come out to check your bin contains only the right things. If you have recycled correctly, we will leave you a card for you to claim your reward.


If you live in a flat or a maisonette or if you share a recycling bin with your neighbours, you will need to ‘pledge to recycle’ to make sure the reward gets to the right person.

If your address is randomly selected and the communal recycling bin contains only the right things you will receive a card to claim your reward.
