Community groups could be in with a chance of winning up to £1,000 in a new glass recycling campaign prize draw from re3, the waste management partnership for Bracknell Forest, Reading and Wokingham.
To take part in the prize draw, re3 is encouraging schools, charities and voluntary and community sector organisations to make a commitment to increasing glass recycling at bring banks. This could be by collecting hot drinks jars after a fundraising coffee morning and taking them to a re3 glass bank; telling others about the initiative through social media; encouraging supporters to use a glass bring bank on their way to work; or to give a school assembly or write an article in a community newsletter on the benefits of glass recycling.
In return, groups will be entered into the community fund prize draw. At the end of the campaign in October 2018, prizes will be allocated to 15 schools, charities or community groups in the re3 area – 5 each from Bracknell Forest, Reading and Wokingham. The more glass recycled through the campaign, the bigger the community fund, up to the value of £15,000 or £1000 per individual prize.
Competitions and prizes for re3 area residents on social media using the #alottabottle hashtag are also being planned. To register your group’s participation in the campaign and to be eligible for the community fund prize draw, please visit www.re3.org.uk now for the application form and a full list of terms and conditions.
