Win prizes for recycling your food waste with the I'm in to Win scheme

People could win some fabulous prizes as well as helping the environment by recycling their food waste.


Residents living in Daventry District who put our their food waste caddies for collection each week can register for the I’m In to Win scheme – and the chance to win prizes ranging from free leisure centre passes, experiences and days out as well as vouchers for local shops and restaurants.


It is organised by the Northamptonshire Waste Partnership, with the support of Northamptonshire County Council’s Waste and Energy Education Team.


Every month there will be a winning resident from each of the four council areas taking part: Corby Borough Council, Daventry District Council, East Northamptonshire Council and South Northamptonshire Council.


Taking part is easy - simply register online at www.feedyourcaddy.co.uk 


Then make sure you put out your food waste caddy for collection as normal each week. 


Councillor Chris Millar, Chairman of the Northamptonshire Waste Partnership, said: “Householders in Northamptonshire already recycle around 9,000 tonnes of food waste every year.  While this is a great effort, we want to capture more of your food waste – making your local collection more efficient and turning waste food into renewable energy.  


“I’m In to Win has lots of exciting prizes to choose from and winners can pick whichever prize suits them the best.  So, if you haven’t started to recycle your food – now is a great time to start!”


How to take part


 


  • Once you have registered your details you will be sent a registration pack – including an “I’m In” sticker for your food waste caddy and a leaflet reminding you of all the food waste you can put in it.

 


  • If you need to order a new or replacement caddy – you can do this here too.   The first 1,000 households to register will also receive a free tea towel in their registration pack.

 


  • The lucky winners from each area will be notified by email, inviting them to choose a prize that suits them best.  Winners’ names will also be published in the NWP’s monthly newsletter and online at www.feedyourcaddy.co.uk 

 


Residents can also find out more about the scheme during a series of awareness events at the following times and locations:


  • South Northants: Thursday 19 November, 11am to 3 pm - Aldi Supermarket, Towcester 

 


  • Daventry: Friday 20 November, 11am to 3 pm - Daventry Town Centre, near to Tesco and the bus station.  

 


I’m In to Win is fully funded by a Government grant and  runs over the next three years, during which time everyone who registers and regularly presents their food waste caddy for collection has a chance of winning a prize.


The Northamptonshire Waste Partnership (NWP) is a partnership of Northamptonshire councils and was set up to improve joint working arrangements on waste management matters. Another key objective is to improve the effective delivery of waste services across the county and reduce waste going to landfill.
