Residents across the borough have until Thursday to be in with a chance of winning a £25,000 prize by signing up to pay their council tax bill by direct debit.
The council tax prize draw promotion is being run by 17 local authorities in London and Bacs Payment Schemes Ltd, the non profit organisation behind direct debit.
Cllr Ian Bond, cabinet member for resources said: “Direct debit is a much cheaper way for us to process payments and the money we save can be used for the benefit of local residents.
“Switching also helps the residents to budget and we’re encouraging as many people as possible to sign up.”
To enter, residents can register online by visiting www.redbridge.gov.uk, or by calling 020 8708 5670 or returning a completed paper direct debit instruction to the council.
Residents who already pay their council tax through this method will be entered into the prize draw automatically.
