Kingston Council has chosen award-winning engagement provider, Local Green Points, to provide a recycling rewards scheme for the Royal Borough’s 20,000 flats.
The scheme will focus on increasing the amount of food recycled, as well as aiming to increase dry recycling and reduce disposal costs.
Kingston Recycling Rewards will be launched to residents in April 2017 with recycling and waste tonnages to be measured quarter on quarter. Residents taking part in the scheme will benefit from a wide range of special offers provided by local retailers and there will be monthly voucher prizes of £25 and £15 for top recyclers. Local charities are also set to benefit from the scheme through a donation fund of £9,500; residents will be encouraged to vote for popular local causes.
