The Recycle for Greater Manchester Community Fund is a joint R4GM and Suez initiative to support Greater Manchester community and voluntary sector groups. The fund helps to deliver projects aimed at reducing household waste, increasing recycling and encouraging reuse.
All of the money raised by our Renew shops goes towards the Community Fund. Every year, £220,000 is available for community and voluntary projects.
The fund aims to support projects which prevent, reuse, or recycle household waste, and also reduce contamination, promote sustainable use of waste and resources, and generate wider social benefits for the communities of Greater Manchester. We want to encourage and support innovative projects that are novel and involve a new and untried approach to tackling an issue in the key waste areas. Your project will need to focus on at least one of these areas.
- Waste prevention
- Increasing recycling
- Reuse of household waste
- Reducing contamination
Your project will need to focus on one or more of these priority waste streams:
- Food waste
- Paper and card
- Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment
Applications will close on May 31st 2022.
