Recycling Fund for Communities

Do you have a London based project that inspires people to do the right thing with their waste?

Through our Recycling Fund for Communities, you could receive a cash boost, in kind resources or staff volunteers to help bring your idea to life.

To be eligible, your project must demonstrate a positive impact on the environment through:

  • Its use of recycled, reused or reclaimed materials
  • ​Its ability to protect and preserve resources
  • Its enhancement of local environments.

Our standard pledge amount is a maximum of £1000.

Unlock additional funding through Veolia's Plastic Pledge

To help reduce plastic waste and encourage recycling within our communities, environmental projects that deliver a positive impact on plastic waste could be eligible for additional Plastic Pledge funding,  which has a maximum pledge amount of £2000 per project. 

To be considered for the additional Plastic Pledge funding, your project must:

  • Encourage the reduction of single-use plastics
  • Demonstrate the reuse of plastics before disposal
  • Raise awareness on plastic pollution and promote change
  • Prevent plastic from being used in the first place.

There are two ways to apply 

Projects requiring less than the maximum pledge amount can apply via our online form. Projects requiring £2000 or more will be required to apply via the Spacehive Crowdfunding platform, where they can pitch to other funds and build a community.  Applications links are located on the top right hand side of this page.

Please note: Projects applying for more than £500 via the online form may be required to submit further information upon request or to apply via Spacehive. The information included in your application will be passed onto the fund's decision-making team and you will be contacted if successful. You may also receive updates about the fund from time to time.
