Waste Prevention Community Grant Fund

Waste Prevention Community Grant Fund

With the cost of dealing with Hampshire’s household waste now regularly topping the £100 million a year mark, Hampshire County Council is offering grants of up to £5,000 to help kick start or expand projects, products and services which prevent waste at home.

Grants will be awarded to projects that reduce or prevent ‘household waste’ – this is different to recycling as it involves taking action before a product or material becomes waste. Grant applications open on March 1, and interested groups are encouraged to discuss potential projects with the County Council’s team prior to applying. Please contact the team via email: waste.prevention@hants.gov.uk to arrange an informal discussion.
