Win a Best of British Hamper
Elmbridge Council has teamed up with local Waitrose stores to offer residents a chance to win one of 20 Best of British food hampers selected by Waitrose. Over a four week period, starting 14 May, one hamper a day will be given to a randomly selected home that's r|ecycling their food waste. The initiative hopes to get even more residents in to the recycling habit.
A Council spokesperson said, "We're extremely grateful to the Waitrose stores in Esher, Cobham, Hersham and Weybridge for donating these fantastic hampers and supporting this environmental initiative. These prize hampers are a great way to say thanks to residents for recycling their unwanted food and leftovers, whilst encouraging even more homes to start recycling. Research shows that Elmbridge households still put an average of 8kg of food waste in their rubbish bin each month."
John Forsbrey, Department Manager at Waitrose Esher, said: "We work hard to ensure that we are treading lightly on the environment, so we're delighted to be providing a prize to recycling residents."
More information about the competition will be placed on bins soon. Elmbridge Council's recycling team will also be at roadshows around the Borough advising people on how to get the best from the food waste service, starting Saturday 21st at the Heart Centre in Walton-on-Thames. |Visit the recycling web pages for roadshows dates and competition information.
