Do you have a collection of plastic bottles sitting around? You may soon be able to cash in and use them to pay for your parking, with one firm launching a trial scheme to do just that.

CitiPark, which operates parking facilities in Leeds, Manchester, Watford and London, has chosen one of its Leeds locations to recycle empty bottles in exchange for parking vouchers.

Situated in the Merrion Centre shopping complex, the firm will give customers a 20p voucher for each empty bottle (500mL or larger) — with no limit on the number of bottles able to be used. The firm will also accept smaller bottles for recycling, but these will not be eligible for the payment trial.

The trial has been running for the duration of October as part of an initiative within the shopping centre, which has seen a number of retailers and organisations at the complex taking part in sustainable activities.

   

Charlotte-Daisy Ziff, head of corporate social responsibilities at CitiPark parent company Town Centre Securities, said: “Here at CitiPark we believe that we all have a part to play in ensuring the preservation and betterment of our environment for future generations.

“So this promotion not only offers our customers the chance of free/discounted parking, but they can also get rid of their waste plastic bottles and contribute to the protection of the environment at the same time: it’s a win-win all around. We hope that as many people as possible will get on board.”
