We’re touching base to let you know about an awesome, creative competition happening this month.

WasteMINZ and Ministry for the Environment are giving schools/groups/individuals the opportunity to win $25,000. All you have to do is create a video or image to show how you recycle right by rinsing your recycling.

 

Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Post your idea to Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, or LinkedIn showing how you make sure all your recycling is cleaned before it goes into the recycling bin. This can be an image or a video.
  2. Tag @RinseRecycleRepeatNZ in your post.
  3. There is no limit on the number of posts a person can create.
  4. Entrants can nominate their entry (should it win) to be donated to a charity, community organisation, school or club. You can do this by tagging the relevant social page/group or stating it in the body copy of your entry OR you can tag yourself!

Competition opens Monday 11 October 2021 and closes at 5pm, Friday 5 November. Winner will be announced the following week.

 

For more information, check out this short video WasteMINZ campaign video and visit the Rinse Recycle Repeat website.
