Green Rewards app

How would you like to win prizes for helping reduce carbon emissions in Newark and Sherwood?

We’re committed to reduce our impact on the environment and we want to reward residents that help us achieve our goals. That’s why we’ve launched a brand new programme called ‘Green Rewards’ to recognise your positive actions, and show residents how small changes in your daily life can make a big impact!

More information about the Green Rewards app can be found on our website. 


We've teamed up with Recycleopedia so that you can find out what day to day household items you can recycle and how.

Simply enter the item you want to recycle and your Nottinghamshire postcode and it will tell you if it belongs in your recycling or general waste bin, or if you need to take them to a recycling site or request a special collection.

If you are trying to recycle an item that doesn’t show on the list, you can let Nottinghamshire County Council know on the next page.
