Have your say

A WOMAN is celebrating after winning a monthly competition aimed at encouraging people to recycle.

Allison Younger, from Great Lumley, near Chester-le-Street, has received a new laptop after becoming the latest winner in the North East Recycling Rewards Scheme, funded by central government and private company Valpak.

Durham County Council is one of five North East councils promoting the scheme, which was launched in December last year and is aimed at encouraging people to recycle glass jars and aerosols.

People can still sign up for the scheme, which runs until the end of July.
