GMWDA launches Community Waste Fund

The Greater Manchester Waste Disposal Authority (GMWDA) has launched a £60,000 Community Waste Fund to support recycling and reuse projects in the Greater Manchester area.

The fund includes a donation from the John Laing Charitable Trust and is supported by the Community Recycling Network North West (CRN).

The aim of the fund is to encourage and empower community groups and charities to become involved in shaping much-needed local initiatives help residents and protect the environment.

The GMWDA is asking for expressions of interest from community groups with projects to increase recycling and reuse in their local area which may require additional funding.

GMWDA lead member for waste minimisation and engagement Joe Murphy said: “The Community Waste Fund provides a great opportunity for some excellent initiatives to gain funding, which can often be very difficult to obtain. It is also a fantastic way for us to get involved with the local community. We’re very much looking forward to receiving the proposals, which will hopefully bring exciting new ideas.”

A judging panel has been set up to evaluate applications and the successful projects will be selected in December.
