£1,000 available for local projects

A new fund from Recycle for Essex has been launched that might be of interest to Essex Sheds. The Essex Community Reuse Fund wants to support local projects that

  • Inspire people and communities to be creative and sustainable with their waste
  • Provide skills and opportunities to build an environmentally sustainable community
  • Make use of recycled, reused or reclaimed materials from the household
  • Reduce the amount of reusable household waste being thrown away

If your shed takes in household waste to refurbish and up-cycle take a look at whether this fund could be for you. They are looking to support local ideas which will inspire people and communities to be creative and sustainable with their household waste and provide skills and opportunities to build an environmentally sustainable community.

Pledges of up to £1,000 match funding are available. Find out more here

Please note: This fund is only available in the Essex County Council area!
