There’s been a big response to the recycling rewards scheme being launched by South Holland District Council on Monday.
The Green Bag Lottery will see ten different households randomly selected every four weeks.
Every household which presents recycling correctly for at least three out of the four weeks will win £100.
All the winners over a three-month period then go forward to a further draw to win £1,000.
A council spokesman said: “This scheme has really got people talking, which is great because the aim is to increase the awareness and levels of recycling in our district.
“In order for households to win, recycling must be presented correctly.
“Our collection crews will be carrying out their usual kerbside checks on bag contents – nothing has changed for the Green Bag Lottery.”
Anyone who runs out of their green bags allocation is able to collect more from either the council’s reception in Priory Road in Spalding, the Market House in Long Sutton or any library in South Holland.
District council officers will be available to talk to the public about the Green Bag Lottery at various venues throughout February (all 10am-2pm).
They are: Spalding Market – 11th and 25th; Holbeach market – 13th; Tesco in Holbeach – 15th and 20th; Long Sutton market – 21st.
