Waste and recycling contractors Veolia are offering up to £2,000 for projects and ideas that inspire people in Watford to do the right thing with their waste.
The company, that is contracted by Watford Borough Council, is supporting grassroots projects that protect the environment and encourage people to recycle their waste through its Recycling Fund for Communities campaign.
Launched in 2017, the fund expanded last year to encourage more projects that demonstrated a positive impact on plastic waste.
Watford’s environmental projects that help to preserve local resources, deliver a positive impact on plastic waste either through prevention, reduction of single use plastics or promote the reuse of plastics are eligible to apply.
Darren Harding, Senior Contracts Manager for Veolia Watford said: “In Watford we collect over 30,000 tonnes of recycling and waste materials every year, so we play a major role in ensuring the borough is sustainable.
“We know Watford residents care about protecting their local resources, and we hope that through the fund we can empower locals to bring their ideas to fruition.
“If you think your project, however big or small, could have a positive impact on the environment, we want to receive your applications today.”
