It's easy to recycle in Westminster. Find out what's new and how we're helping you to recycle more.
"It's got to be in it to win it" News
The In it to win it reward scheme has been going from strength to strength since it started in September 2015. Westminster estates have won over £40,000 in rewards over the last year just by increasing their recycling. This is a huge achievement that has seen recycling in some estates double!
We would like to thank the residents involved for getting behind the scheme and doing all they can to recycle more. Thanks also to our partners City West Homes, Peabody Homes and Veolia for everything they do to help make the scheme a success.
There are too many winners to name them all.. 38 estates have won money so far, some have won more than once! A special mention must go to Holcroft Estate who were awarded £1000 for having the best quality recycling. Residents voted and decided to spend their winnings on improving the communal garden areas.
Other prizes awarded last year include day trips for community groups, energy saving light bulbs for residents and improvements to communal areas. If you have a suggestion for how your estate can spend their winnings tell us by filling out the online suggestion form.
We can only reward estates that have put the right things into their recycling bins. If the wrong items are put into the bins it is not safe to remove them so all of the recycling goes to waste. A list of what can is accepted can he found here.
