DDC partners with LitterLotto to reward residents who bin litter


LitterLotto is a free mobile phone app

Dover District Council (DDC) has partnered with litter pioneers, LitterLotto, to help reduce street litter.

LitterLotto is a free mobile phone app which offers users the chance to win prizes for doing the right thing and putting litter in the bin.

Once you have downloaded the app, you simply take a photograph using the app as you place your litter in the bin. All litter counts, from a single cigarette stub to an abandoned bottle or takeaway box.

Each time you bin a piece of litter, you get another entry into the LitterLotto national £1,000 weekly jackpot, instant spot prizes and their brand new “LitterLotto Coins”, which may be redeemed for a variety of prizes and extra jackpot entries. You can submit as many entries as you like, just BinItToWinIt!

David Landsberg, founder and CEO of LitterLotto, said: “We are delighted to partner with Dover District Council, we are proud to support them in their mission to ensure that Dover remains a wonderful place to live, work and visit." 

DDC is also offering a local jackpot of £100 each month for users of the app who bin litter in our district.

Plus, in support of the upcoming Great British Spring Clean Campaign, DDC will be offering two additional weekly local jackpots of £100 with the first winner being drawn on 20 March. Anyone participating in the Great British Spring Clean can use the LitterLotto App.

All you need to do is pick, bin and snap via the free LitterLotto App for a chance to win.

Cllr Martin Bates, Cabinet member for Transport, Licensing and Regulatory Services, said: “We are delighted to be working with Litter Lotto to encourage our residents to dispose of litter responsibly. We hope that people will give this app a try, see how easy it is to enter and win, and help us to spread the word. Every little helps as far as litter is concerned and this scheme directly rewards those who do the right thing and put litter in the bin.”

Notes to editors

The Great British Spring Clean is hosted by Keep Britain Tidy. Back for its eighth year (17 March – 2 April), it encourages the nation to get involved in clearing litter from parks, streets and open spaces. This year’s theme is ‘Taking pride in your local area’ and DDC is supporting the scheme once again.

LitterLotto was inspired by the desire to find a solution to the growing issue of litter. It has been created and passionately developed by a dedicated team who believe in the power of positive action and in technology’s ability to facilitate world-changing solutions.

The free app is available on both the App Store and Google Play.

Helpful videos and all you need to know are on the app. The app is not intended for use by children under the age of 13. Other users under the age of 16 must have obtained the consent of a parent or legal guardian to use the app. Terms and conditions can be viewed at litterlotto.com

The ‘perfect’ Litter Lotto submission:

1)    A picture of either a hand or a litter picker holding the item

2)    The item should be positioned just above the lip/entry point of a bin (or bin bag in the case of a bulk litter pick).

3)    The image should clearly show the item.
