On Tuesday 4 April five Camden charities were awarded a total of £5000, thanks to the recycling efforts of nearly 16,000 Camden residents.

The funding for the scheme comes from a central government (DCLG) grant, won by Camden to incentivise recycling.
Residents using the scheme can earn ‘green points’ by recycling more and using recycling and rubbish online tools, including ‘reporting your recycling’, ‘ordering recycling containers’ and ‘organising community clean-ups’.
The Camden resident with the most green points receives a monthly prize and all members receive discounts in local businesses. Part
