Merton Mega Recycle Scheme Set To Start

Cash prizes to be won for re-cycling

Door steppers will be knocking on residents' doors from tomorrow (April 23) in a bid to get more people in Merton to recycle.

Part of the Merton Mega Recycle campaign, which launched earlier this year, the callers will have packs including information on what and how to recycle and a pledge form so residents can sign up to the Mega Recycle challenge and be in with a chance to win hundreds of pounds for themselves and potentially thousands of pounds for their local community and schools.

The door steppers will also hand residents a sticker to stick on their recycling boxes so the council's recycling crews can see who wants to be part of Merton's Mega Recycle.

Merton's door steppers will be wearing hi-vis vests with the Mega Recycle logo and residents should ask to see their photo identity badge which will have the person’s name and title as well as the Merton Council logo.

Everyone who signs up will be entered into the draw every month. Eleven households will be randomly selected each month: one will win £250 and the other ten will win £100.

The council will be updating its leader boards so everyone can track their progress.
