We’ve launched an exciting new contest for residents of Warwickshire County Council: Warwickshire’s Recycling Champion of the Year 2018. We’ve teamed up with Warwickshire Waste Partnership, to deliver the contest to residents in Warwickshire’s five districts and boroughs: Warwick, Stratford-on-Avon District, Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough, Rugby Borough and North Warwickshire Borough.
The contest will engage residents in recycling more of their everyday household items and will be a fantastic opportunity to recognise and reward local recycling champions. There are plenty of prizes up for grabs for top recyclers, including a two night staycation in the luxury Lady Craven Suite at the Coombe Abbey hotel, provided by Shakespeare’s England. With online heats and a live final at the Market Hall Museum in Warwick, this looks set to be an exciting contest! To take part, residents will need to be signed up to the Slim Your Bin campaign, which we’ve been running with Warwickshire Waste Partnership in Warwickshire’s 5 districts and boroughs since November 2016. Anyone in Warwickshire can sign up for free by visiting www.warwickshire.slim-your-bin.com. Once signed up, residents can nominate themselves to take part in the contest by filling in a quick, online form at: www.warwickshire.slim-your-bin.com/recyclingchamp. Nominations will close on November 30th this year and finalists will go head-to-head at a live final at the Market Hall Museum in Warwick next spring.
Like many of our other Recycling Reward schemes, the Slim Your Bin campaign motivates residents to recycle by delivering an innovative online platform and communications campaign, helping residents learn how to recycle more and waste less and motivating them to ‘slim’ their bins. In keeping with our approach of using incentives and rewards to inspire behaviour change, the campaign rewards residents for recycling with individual prizes for top bin ‘dieters’ and community prizes for the communities that recycle the most. We’re really looking forward to seeing how the competition progresses and the impact is has on community recycling rates!
