Should recycling be rewarded?
Labour had proposed fitting electronic weighing tags to bins, and fining people who threw away too much rubbish.
Now ministers are backing a scheme in Berkshire which awards points for the amount households recycle, which can be redeemed at shops, restaurants and leisure centres, or donated to schools.
Do you agree with this approach? Would a points incentive encourage you to recycle? Were you in favour of the bin tax? Are you signing up for the scheme?
