Thanks to our Local Green Points scheme, Camden Recycling Rewards,residents in the London Borough of Camden are recycling 10% more of their household items that they did last year.
Since its launch in October 2016, the scheme has been rewarding residents in the London Borough of Camden for recycling more and producing less household waste. Residents are rewarded with Green Points for reporting their weekly recycling and taking part in online activities such as making the switch to using real nappies, or taking part in local reuse events and workshops.Waste tonnages are also measured and points awarded to communities when the amount wasted decreases and the amount recycled increases. Monthly voucher prizes are awarded to individuals who earn the most Green Points and just for signing up, every resident receives a discount card that they can use to redeem exclusive discounts and special offers at participating local businesses. The scheme has a strong community focus, as communities are able to vote for their favourite local charities to receive a share of £5,000 at the end of every six months.
The recent data showing that residents are now putting around 10% more recycling in their recycling bins, as compared to the same time last year, is excellent news and exactly what Camden Council had hoped for when we started working with them. We are extremely pleased with the results and look forward to seeing residents continue to respond positively to the scheme in the upcoming months. Residents and local businesses can participate in Camden Recycling Rewards for free. Residents just need to activate their accounts online at camden.gov.uk/recyclingrewards or over the phone on 020 7326 5055 (Mon-Fri, 9am-5:30pm).
