Recycling incentive scheme
Residents who recycle their household waste properly, in their blue bin, can collect points and exchange them for rewards in our recycling incentive scheme.
How to register
e+ card holders
If you already have an e+ card you can register for the incentive scheme online - just follow the link below. Please allow 4 weeks for your activation pack to arrive following registration.
Please note that if you have an edge card you need to apply for an e+ card to take part in the scheme.
No e+ card?
To take part in the scheme you'll need an e+ card. You'll be able to register for the recycling rewards scheme as part of the application process.
If you need to replace a lost e+ card there will be a £5 charge.
After signing up
You will receive an activation pack within 4 weeks of signing up to the recycling incentive scheme. In order to start collecting points you will need to stick the white sticker enclosed in the activation pack on your blue bin. You won't receive any points if the bin is put out for collection without this.
If you don't receive your pack within 4 weeks or you lose your sticker then please complete our recycling incentive enquiry form.
Collecting points and logging into your account
How to collect points
Every time we empty your bin, the white sticker will be scanned and 200 points will be added to your account. It may take up to 2 weeks for points to show up in your account.
How to check your points balance
You can check your points balance and find out how to use your points to get a reward by logging into your account in the reward portal.
To log into your rewards account you need to use the password you set on your e+ card account. If you have forgotten your password you will need to follow the lost password process on the e+ site.
A temporary password will then be sent to your registered email address. The temporary password will not work in the rewards portal, so you will need to log into the e+ site and then set a new password. This will then work in the rewards portal.
The rewards available include leisure activities such as a free swim at Bracknell Leisure Centre or tickets to The Look Out Discovery Centre. For a full list of rewards please log into your account or see our recycling incentive scheme rewards list (PDF, 86kb).
You can also save points towards reduced price composters, water butts, green cones and kitchen caddies. If you'd like a green reward (PDF, 271kb), please complete our recycling incentive scheme form. You can pay online. We will email you to let you know when your green reward is ready to be collected from our central depot in Old Bracknell Lane, Bracknell.
How to redeem your points
To redeem your points for a leisure or library reward go along to the relevant location, produce your e+ card and ask to pay with reward points before the transaction is processed. Points will be removed from your account in exchange for the reward.
If you log into your account and you think you may be missing some points then please complete our recycling incentive enquiry form.
Please note you are responsible for monitoring whether you are receiving reward points following recycling collections. If you are missing any points you are responsible for notifying the council. Any claims for missing points must be made within 3 months of the recycling collection date being claimed for.
You can recycle your recycling rewards points for a cash donation to a local good cause. For more information on the good cause donations please visit our recycling incentive scheme - good causes page.
