Campaign partners Bristol City Council, Hubbub and Bristol Waste launched Bristol’s Binning in early November with the roll-out of new eye-catching bins in litter hotspots.
The creative bins feature bright colours, song lyrics and playful puns to instil Bristolians with a sense of pride in keeping their city clean, with a focus of engaging with young people.
Bristol Sport is now offering up five pairs of tickets for a Bristol City or Bristol Bears game of the winners’ choice on the free-to-use prize draw app, LitterLotto, for people who dispose of their litter in areas around the stadium and across the whole of Bristol.
To take part, Bristolians are encouraged to download the app, submit a picture of themselves binning litter or recycling, and they could win a pair of tickets.
Bristol Sport’s participation is part of the group-wide sustainability initiative, Project Whitebeam, which was launched earlier this year by Bristol Bears, Bristol City, Bristol Flyers, and Ashton Gate to recognise, measure and minimise our impact on the environment.
Beau Zilesnick, Creative Partner at Hubbub said: “We’re pleased to see local business involvement boost the campaign, with more colourful bins and so many more prizes up for grabs for anyone binning their litter. Thanks to the support from local partners such as Bristol Sport, we can engage with residents and visitors to Bristol in a fun way in locations we know are litter hotspots. We’re keen to speak with other interested organisations how they can get involved in ‘Bristol’s Binning’ and help tackle the 3,700 tonnes of litter collected every year in Bristol.”
Peter Smith, Project Manager at Bristol Sport, said: “Waste is one of five key issues being tackled by Project Whitebeam so we’re delighted to be a part of the Bristol’s Binning campaign. As proud Bristolians we strongly encourage everyone to use bins properly at the stadium, en route to games and wherever you are in our great city.”
LitterLotto app competition:
- To be in with a chance of winning, all you have do is simply to take a picture of litter as you place it in the bin. It can also be a recyclable item being placed in a recycling bin.
- Anything that is designed to be consumed or used on the go count as litter. Examples are sandwiches, drinks cans, crisp packets etc.
- Any bin can be used, public or home bin, but household items won’t count. So don’t submit pictures of yourself binning shampoo bottles or empty bacon packets!
- What does the picture have to look like/ include? – The ‘perfect’ LitterLotto picture will have your hand holding the item just above a bin. If you’re picking up other people’s litter, we’d advise using some gloves! Litter pickers are very welcome and encouraged and they can be used in a picture instead of your hand.
