RECYCLE For Greater Manchester (R4GM) is working in partnership with One Trafford to launch a ‘bin it to win it’ recycling challenge in the Flixton, Urmston and Davyhulme East areas of Trafford.

It will be launched with an event in Eden Square Shopping Centre, Golden Way on October 30 from 10am to 3pm.

There will be free face painting for the kids, recycling give-aways, and the opportunity to pledge to recycle more with a chance to win a £50 ‘Love to Shop’ voucher.

The ‘bin it to win it’ challenge will run from October to December. The challenge aims to encourage residents to recycle just one more thing.

Properties will be drawn at random and their recycling bins will undergo checks and if all the recycling bins contain the right recyclable items they will be awarded a prize of ‘Love to Shop’ vouchers.
