Win cash for your electricals

We have taken the decision to suspend our promotion offering you the chance to win £100 by taking your old, unwanted or broken household electricals to our recycling centres in exchange for golden tickets.


The decision has been taken in light of Government guidelines on social distancing to help prevent the spread of coronavirus and we apologise for any inconvenience which may be caused.

There have been 5 winners since the launch of the promotion on 2 March 2020 and if you have a golden ticket you can still check to find out if you are a winner.

Check your ticket

Everyone who checked a ticket but was unsuccessful and left us their contact details will still be entered into a prize draw to win £100. This will be drawn in the coming weeks and the winner will be notified.

Please look out for details about the campaign resuming later in the year.

Our household waste recycling centres remain open at present.

If you’re unsuccessful this time, don’t forget to leave your contact details to be entered into a prize draw to win £100.

Good luck and thank you for recycling.
