Earn rewards for reducing, reusing and recycling

Camden Recycling Rewards provides benefits for you and your communities for your efforts to reduce, reuse and recycle. The more you do, the more money you can win for local charities and community projects and the more chance you’ll have of winning vouchers for yourself.

How it works

Through the scheme, you earn Green Points for your community by participating in a number of waste and recycling ‘modules’. These modules are shown on the homepage and include reporting your recycling, ordering recycling containers and organising community clean ups. 

We also measure the amount of waste and recycling being produced by the communities, with those improving the most receiving Green Points every month. We don’t weigh or measure your bins individually, but rather weigh each recycling or rubbish truck after it has finished its collections.

Rewards for your community

When you activate your account you are placed into one of 5 communities, depending on where you live. You can see these communities below:

Community Map

The 5 communities will compete to earn the most Green Points and top the leader board, which you can view on the homepage.

After 6 months, the community that has earned the most Green Points will win the biggest share of £5,000 to donate to one of five local charities and community projects. The projects being supported in year two of the scheme are:

  • Little Village Camden
  • Camden Mind
  • Cancer Research
  • Castlehaven Community Association
  • NW5 Community Play Project

Every member of the scheme has the chance to vote for which charity or community project they’d like their community’s share of the money to go to – simply head to the homepage and click the ‘Vote’ button under your favourite.

Rewards for you

Every month we reward the resident who earned the most Green Points from each community with a £30 voucher, from a choice of:

  • iTunes
  • Marks & Spencer
  • Green Rewards
  • Everyman Cinema
  • Love2Shop

Please note, you’ll only be able to win one voucher within any six month period and no more than two vouchers over the schemes lifetime.
