Staffordshire Pays Respects To HRH Prince Philip (1921 -2021)

Recycling credits overview

In order to encourage greater recycling, we provide a financial incentive to charitable and non-for-profit organisations that recycle different waste materials. This incentive is called a recycling credit, which allows numerous organisations, authorities and charities to claim a credit.

To find out if you are eligible to claim recycling credits and what materials you can claim for, please view the terms & conditions

If you believe your organisation is eligible to claim recycling credits under the terms and conditions set out in the policy above, you will then need to:

1. Decide what to collect

Ensure the materials collected are only from households, not businesses. Ensure the materials can be recycled and that they can be collected and stored safely.

2. Arrange a merchant to collect

All materials need to be collected by a registered merchant recycler, otherwise recycling credits will not be paid.

3. Register collection scheme with us

We can supply the relevant forms for registering the scheme (please email us) and may be able to offer practical advice on how to set up a scheme.

4. Start collecting

Publicise the scheme in the local area and collect the chosen materials.

5. Claim Recycling Credits

Email us to request a claim form. Complete the claim form along with the submission of relevant weighbridge tickets.

Please note: your scheme may not be accepted if it conflicts with another registered recycling scheme or a district council recycling programme.

If you would like to speak to someone about registering for recycling credits, please contact 0300 111 8000.
