Recycle your beverage cartons for a chance to win a year's garden waste collection

The Dorset Waste Partnership (DWP) has launched a competition where residents have a chance to win a fantastic prize, simply by recycling their used cartons.

To promote our carton recycling service, the Dorset Waste Partnership (DWP) is giving away a whole year's garden waste collection service to three lucky winners.

Carton banks are currently at risk of removal from car-parks because they are under-used and often contain incorrect items, such as glass or regular cardboard. This means they are becoming too costly for the DWP's contractors to continue providing. But if we increase the amount of cartons we recycle and stop the wrong items going in these banks, we can hopefully keep them where they are.

To take part in this competition, all you need to do is;

  • write your name and email address or phone number on a carton
  • take it to one of 20 different locations around the county and pop it into a carton bank 
  • one of these cartons will be selected at random each month until the end of June and each winner will receive a whole year's garden waste collection service from the DWP
  • terms and conditions apply (please see below).

There will also be a selection of runner-up prizes and all entrants are encouraged to share or post a photo of themselves recycling their cartons to the DWP's  Facebook page (opens in a new window) and  Twitter account (opens in a new window).

Closing date for entries is Friday 30 JuneGood luck!
