Does your community group or project want to be in with a chance of winning a reward worth up to £1,000?
Can you help play a part in increasing recycling in Salford?
'Recycle and Reward' aims to boost recycling rates and rewards local good causes.
Each month, several 'good causes' are listed in each area of Salford and residents vote for their preferred good cause. The one with the most votes in each area receives the reward they have asked for - but only if recycling in that area has increased from the month before.
We're looking for local charities, social groups, youth groups, residents associations, schools and community groups to sign up to be a 'good cause'.
If you'd like your group, school or project to be considered, please fill out the form and tell us what you would like funding for. It could be anything from new equipment or resources to building repairs, putting on an event or paying for publicity materials. Please give as much detail as possible in your application. We're not able to give you cash, we will purchase what you have asked for on your behalf.
If your cause is selected we'd like you to push recycling to your members, networks and community, and get everyone to help increase recycling in your area that month and in the future, as well as getting everyone to vote for you!
Recycling is vital because we can't keep burying waste in the ground. Every tonne we can divert from landfill is better for the environment and saves the council money which we can use to support essential public services.
