Greater Manchester Community Waste Fund - apply now!
UP to £10,000 has been made available by Recycle 4 Greater Manchester to help communities reduce, re-use and recycle more!
Do you know of a community/voluntary group or a not for profit organisation with an interest in increasing re-use or recycling, and reducing waste? Recycle for Greater Manchester (R4GM) are keen to help them turn that idea into a reality and increase the number of community groups actively helping residents reduce, re-use and recycle more waste in Greater Manchester.
Through the Community Waste Fund (CWF), a wide variety of groups has already received support, from a tenant association in Monton, Salford, who encouraged local residents and businesses to recycle right, to a social housing landlord in Trafford who have set up a new furniture re-use organisation and shop which is taking good quality furniture from their empty properties to help new tenants furnish their homes cheaply.
The next round of this funding is now open for applications until Friday 15 February 2013.
If you have an idea but don't know what to do next you can find out more by reading the online guidance notes. Or, to find out about the projects that have been funded in the past, to download a copy of the application form, or for information on how we score applications, please go to the R4GM website.
