As many times as you like. There’s no limit on the number of times you can enter.
A panel made up of expert dunking judges and an independent adjudicator will score entries and decide on the winners.
What are the judges looking for?
The judges are looking for epic dunks. But they must be safe and into a recycling bin.
Scores will be based on:
- How original and unique the videos are
- How creative they are
- Overall presentation
- Level of detail and video quality
- Style and innovation of video
What should I look out for when making my video?
Take a look at #CokeDunks: How to recycle epically when creating your video.
Does the film have to feature me?
Not necessarily. But it has to be your original footage, owned by you and recorded by you. It can’t be someone else’s dunk taken without their permission.
Whoever submits the video will be awarded the prize, if chosen as one of our winners.
What type of bin should be in the video?
A recycling bin must be clearly visible. This can be a recycling bin in your home, in your local community, or on the street, but it must be the right recycling bin for the packaging you’re dunking.
What if I can’t find a recycling bin to dunk into?
If you’re having trouble finding a recyling bin near your, or you’d like more information on what can and cannot be recycled in your area, recycling charity Recycle Now, or WRAP, has a recycling bin locator tool to help.

Can I dunk glass bottles?
Oh no no no. Please don’t try and dunk glass bottles. Although we do still encourage you to recycle them. Just don’t dunk or throw them. They won’t bounce like plastic will…
What should I do with the bottles I don’t dunk?
Recycle them! Or simply try dunking them again. If you flunk it, redunk it…
Can there be liquid in the bottle when I dunk it?
No. So that it can be recycled properly, the bottle needs to be completely empty with the bottle cap screwed back on.
Can I have cash instead of the prize?
