GreenPak’s campaign lottery “You win…The environment wins” has registered an increase of 3% in residents participating in waste recycling practices. The environmental lottery, which has now come to an end, has left 24 lucky winners across the Maltese islands €200 richer. Since its launch last October 2011, the weekly environmental lottery presented cash prizes to residents for properly disposing their packaging waste in GreenPak bring-in-sites (BIS) or through door-to-door collections.
The lucky winners hailed from various localities across Malta and Gozo, including Attard, Balzan, Birżebbuga, Fgura, Floriana, Kalkara, Luqa, Marsa, Mqabba, Paola, Pembroke, Safi, Sannat, Tarxien, Qrendi, Vittoriosa, Xewkija, Żebbuġ and Żurrieq.
GreenPak’s Education Officer Kurt Scerri said: “GreenPak’s initiative has served to further encourage waste separation and reward residents for recycling more. As the name of the lottery suggests “You win…The environment wins”, both stakeholders are winners. This is the kind of model, backed with educational campaigns about the benefits of recycling, that forms the core principles of GreenPak.”
