Posted onPosted on 11th Apr

Community groups, schools, and charities have been invited to apply for a share of funding for initiatives that focus on waste reduction, reuse, or recycling.

Veolia and Nottinghamshire County Council’s Reduce, Reuse, Recycling Fund aims to support projects that encourage individuals to adopt a new perspective on waste and resources.

Grants of up to £1,000 are available. They could include for practical equipment, in-person or online workshops, social media campaigns, practical equipment, education activities, or awareness raising.

The fund, now in its 14th year, has previously supported a diverse range of projects and activities, including swap shop events, repair workshops, composting schemes, food waste reduction initiatives, and community gardens utilising reused, reclaimed or recycled materials.

Steve Newman, general manager for Veolia Nottinghamshire, said: “We believe that by supporting sustainable initiatives, we can ignite a shift in mindset towards mindful consumption, adopt a new perspective on waste, and pave the way for a more sustainable future in Nottinghamshire.”

Coun Neil Clarke, cabinet member for Transport and Environment at Nottinghamshire County Council, added: “Anything we can do to increase everyone’s desire to cut waste must be a benefit to us all.”

Applications to the Reduce, Reuse, Recycling Fund can be made at or by calling 0203 5674391. The closing date is 28th June.
