Why are Veolia doing this?
It’s simple really – we want to help everyone in our local communities to connect with their environment and play an active part in preserving it. What better way to do this than directly supporting local project ideas that encourage recycling, waste reduction or the reuse of materials - whether it's running swap shop events in your local community, turning empty water bottles into a greenhouse or turning an old milk float into a mobile education unit!
What is up for grabs?
We want to support the small, grass roots projects that get communities involved and make a real difference. We can give up to £1000 for any individual project and we have up £50,000 available across London and Watford between now and the end of 2017.
While we will give priority to the boroughs where we provide waste and recycling services for residents (see below), we are always open to consider innovative projects that will get results, wherever they may be.
What else can Veolia offer?
When you apply to our fund, let us know if you think staff volunteers or resources such as waste or scrap materials, soil improver, composters or tools and equipment would be useful as we may be able to provide these in addition to cash funds.
See ‘How to get involved’ section below for more details about creating a project.
