Recyclebank scheme launch

Lambeth Council is working together with Recyclebank to reward residents for recycling at home. We are the first London borough to launch the Recyclebank programme.

The new "I Recycled" scheme, which launches on 16 May, allows you to earn points every week when you recycle and it’s free to join. As your points add up you can redeem them for vouchers which can be used at almost 100 local businesses as well as a range of other offers.

By simply recycling your waste and letting Recyclebank know, you could make up to £75 a year in savings when visiting restaurants or buying anything from clothing to books. You will even be rewarded with 300 Recyclebank points just for joining the scheme!

At present the scheme is restricted to households with shared recycling containers, mainly those of you living in larger blocks of flats. Everyone eligible to join the scheme will be receiving information directly from Recyclebank.

We hope the incentive scheme will encourage everyone to get involved in recycling. If the scheme proves a success we plan to roll it out to all households in 2012. For more information visit
