Do you remember taking the pop bottles back to the shop when you were younger?
How much was it? 10p the last time I remember doing it!
Well now you can make money, well points, on your recycling!!!!
Tesco Brockworth have a new fangled machine that eats plastic bottles, cans and glass, and in return you are awarded 1 tesco green point!!
Ok, that works out at 1p, but that's better than nothing, and IF you use the points in the deals, it works out at 4p! That's much better isn't it?
And the points accumulate until someone puts them on the card!! So if the people before you forget to take their card, or haven't worked out how to do it, then you can collect their points as well!! hey hey!!
We haven't tried it yet, because yes, you guessed it, we forgot our card!! When Ds finished putting our recycling in the machine, the total on the screen to be collected was 80p, hmmm, that could have been £3.20!!
So, we are now stopping our kerbside recycling of cans and bottles in favour of recycling at Tesco! We go there anyway to do the polythene, tetra packs and cardboard, so it will not take an extra trip!
We have never been abroad on holiday before, but I am saving my recycling/tesco points to go to Brittany next year!
