Anyone who makes a pledge
can guess how many bottles are in the bin for the chance to win £1,000
in shopping vouchers. The prize will be shared if there is more than
one winning entry.
Through the pledge form, an
individual can also request a member of the campaign's Reward Team to
visit on their collection day.
If they are randomly chosen
to be visited and washed and squashed bottles are found in their recycling
bin, they will be sent £20 in shopping vouchers.
The next roadshows will be
held between 10am and 3pm as follows:
The campaign, which runs until
Tuesday, January 31, 2012, aims to increase plastic recycling rates
in the borough.
It is being run by the local

can find help and advice on all aspects of recycling at home, at school
and in the workplace.
People can make their pledge

or by completing a form that will be available at roadshow events.
