Electricals Recycling Fund

News/Updates:Funding to help tackle growing household electrical waste.
Material Focus has announced that its Electricals Recycling Fund is due to reopen to applications for projects that make it easier for UK householders to recycle their electrical goods.
This round of funding will support projects that test new and practical ways for people to reuse and recycle their electricals, introduce kerbside collections, and add more collection points and bring banks.
We fund two types of projects – those seeking to grow or develop existing household collection services for small household electricals, and those seeking to innovate new collection methods.
Who can apply?Registered organisations only – such as local authorities, waste collection authority areas, contractors, non-profits, community sector organisations, producer compliance schemes, and retailers
Grant amount:Growing existing services Organisations can apply for up to £100,000 of funding for projects that aim to grow or improve existing household waste and recycling collection services.
Innovating new methods Organisations can apply for up to £50,000 for projects that aim to innovate or test new approaches to collect electricals for reuse and recycling.
We may consider further funding should the project demonstrate value for money and significant impact.
Deadline:Please submit an expression of interest stating which project you are applying for.
We’ll review your information against our criteria and invite successful applicants to submit a full application.
