Reduce waste and get rewards with the 'Rethink Waste' scheme
Reducing waste plays an important role in helping the planet as it means fewer resources are used up when creating new products.
By making small changes to your lifestyle, you can do your bit to help reduce waste in the borough. The ‘Rethink Waste’ scheme can help you along the way.
What the ‘Rethink Waste’ scheme is about
Rethink Waste is a free scheme that offers a range of rewards for reducing waste. It is available to anyone living in Surrey, and
3,050 Elmbridge residents have already signed up.
Surrey Environment Partnership (SEP) is made up of Surrey County Council and the 11 district and borough councils in the county (including Elmbridge). It aims to manage Surrey’s waste in the most efficient, effective, economical and sustainable manner.
Greenredeem is an organisation that provides digital engagement platforms to provoke environmental behaviour change.
