In Biffaward's seventh annual report entitled 'Getting The Job Done', they outline how over the last year they have allocated almost £7 million to more than 150 projects throughout the UK.
The multi-million pound-a-year fund was set up by Biffa using tax charged on waste taken to landfill sites to help finance environmental projects.
Biffaward chairman Martin Bettington said: "More and more organisations are continuing to approach Biffaward for financial support, demonstrating how important the Landfill Tax Credit Scheme (LTCS) is as a source of funding for so many community groups."
The scheme is conscious that while having a great idea for a project is one thing, finding the necessary funding is another. Tips are offered on getting the project started and ensuring that it reaches a successful conclusion.
Bettington added: "The past year has been hugely successful for Biffaward and we've supported some really exciting projects that are making a huge difference to their local community and environment, and we look forward to an even more successful year in 2006."
