Green Reward Schemes

Rethink Waste – reduce Surrey’s waste and get rewards

Rethink Waste is a free scheme available to anyone living in Surrey that offers a range of rewards for reducing waste.

Surrey residents can sign up online and will receive weekly emails, which include engaging and gamified activities designed to help residents reduce the amount of waste they produce. Every time a member engages with content, they receive points, which can be used to donate to schools, charities or to enter prize draws.

Participating Surrey schools can win a share of £6,000 from the scheme to run an environmental project benefiting the school and its pupils.

So, not only will you be helping the planet, as waste reduction means fewer resources are used up when creating new products, you’ll be helping good causes too.

Rethink Waste is being delivered by the Surrey Environment Partnership, made up of Surrey County Council and the 11 district and borough councils in Surrey, in collaboration with Greenredeem, an organisation that provides digital engagement platforms to provoke environmental behaviour change.

Residents can take part in Rethink Waste now by signing up online
