Compost Awareness Week 2018

April 30, 2018

It’s Compost Awareness Week from 6th – 12th May this year and to celebrate we’re giving away a posh Kilner Kitchen caddy on Facebook.

Follow our Facebook page Leicestershire Recycling to take part in the giveaway and to see some more composting content.



To be entered into the free prize draw, the post advertising the draw must be commented on and the Leicestershire Recycling page must be ‘liked’. People that already ‘like’ the page will still be able to win if they leave a comment.

A winner will be randomly selected on the 4th May. The Council will contact the winner via a Facebook message to confirm their address is within Leicestershire, the winner must respond by 7th May for the prize to be sent out upon confirmation.

The winner will be picked at random using a random number generator by the Council from all the entries received. The Council‘s decision is final and no correspondence or discussion will be entered into.

The free prize draw is only open to Leicestershire residents aged 18 or over, except staff (or members of their families) of the Council.

Only one entry per person is allowed.

Entries received after the closing date will not be included in the free prize draw. The council will not be responsible for any entries that are not received by, for any reason, the closing date, whether or not due to any technical difficulties or malfunctions, or any other problem with any server or internet access. Proof of dispatch of entries will not be accepted as proof of receipt.

By entering a free prize draw, entrants warrant that they have legal capacity to enter and agree to be bound by these terms and conditions, and any other free prize draw instructions made by the Council.

Should the Council be unable to contact the winner following the close of the free prize draw, or should the winner be unable to confirm acceptance of the prize, the Council reserves the right to choose an alternative winner.

The Council accepts no liability if the entrants ignore these rules and entrants agree to fully indemnify the Council against any claims by third party arising from any breach of these rules.

The Council endeavors to send the prize within 10 working days of acceptance, but cannot guarantee that this will be done within this time frame. The Council accepts no liability for the prize being lost or damaged or delayed in the post.

The prize draw is being run by Leicestershire County Council, County Hall, Glenfield, Leicestershire, LE3 8RA.

The Council reserves the right to cancel the free prize at any stage if deemed necessary and/or amend these terms and conditions, without notice. In any of these events the Council will publish these changes on and the entrants agree that the Council will not be liable as a result of these changes. It is the responsibility of the entrants to keep themselves informed as to any updates of these rules. Cash will not be given as an alternative to a prize.

Unsuccessful entrants will not be contacted.

All entrants agree to have their comments answering the question “Why should we compost?” used for posts to promote home composting the week following on from the competition.
