London Green Points – Havering, the scheme that rewards Havering residents for throwing away less and recycling more, is looking for volunteers to become champions for the scheme and to spread the reducing, reusing and recycling message in their local community.

The scheme, which launched in January and now has 25,000 households signed up and earning rewards for their efforts, is looking for passionate individuals who want to learn more about recycling in Havering and want to encourage their neighbours to do more.

By volunteering to become a London Green Points – Havering champion they will receive support and training as well as opportunities to attend events promoting the scheme. Volunteers will also receive additional Green Points for attending champions meetings and events.

Each champion will receive a champions pack, containing detailed information about recycling services in their area as well as how they can earn Green Points not just for reducing, reusing and recycling but also for attending waste minimisation events.

Once provided with all the information and materials they need, champions would be encouraged to promote the scheme to their friends and neighbours and well as attending press and recycling events.

Volunteers need to members of London Green Points – Havering to be eligible. Any household in Havering can sign up to the free scheme by visiting, emailing or by calling 0207 326 5055 (Mon-Fri, 9am-5:30pm).
