Members of Camden Recycling Rewards benefit from offers in nearly 100 Camden businesses

Camden Council has set a food waste challenge to its residents in the borough in partnership with recycling reward scheme Local Green Points.

The challenge aims to reduce household waste by rewarding residents with individual and community prizes for cutting down their food waste.

Residents will be shown that storing food correctly, understanding date labels, portion control, planning meals and using up leftovers can all make an impact.

By signing up to the scheme, they will make pledges about reducing food waste and earn ‘green points’ for sticking to them.

Adam Harrison, Camden Council’s cabinet member for Improving Camden’s Environment, said: “Cutting down on food waste is a key part to our strategy for reducing the amount of waste we send for disposal.

“I hope it [food waste challenge] will encourage more residents to sign up to the scheme too.”

Members of Camden Recycling Rewards benefit from offers in nearly 100 Camden businesses with a £30 voucher given each month to the top recycler in each of the five Camden communities.
