The London Assembly released a report reviewing the debate on incentivising recycling schemes in London – with the conclusion that although it may encourage a change in behaviour, it is unclear if this would be sustained over time.
I am curious to see the outcome of Lambeth Council’s recycling RecycleBank pilot scheme, which rewards residents for recycling. Points add up and can be redeemed for vouchers to be used in the local community. I think this is a great example of building a sustainable community – both in ensuring we reduce our waste, but also in investing in the local economy.
There is a good article in Business Green that discusses this further here.
