Minister offers anti-littering grants

More than £300,000 is being offered by the Government for community projects to reduce litter.

The first round of the Litter Innovation Fund saw almost £125,000 awarded to projects that included measures to tackle littering by football fans and work with hauliers to reduce roadside litter.

Now the remainder of the £450,000 fund is on offer, with grants of up to £10,000 for each approved project. Applications must be made by 5 October.

Environment minister Therese Coffey said: “This Government is tough on tackling litter which, if left unchecked, makes our towns and cities less pleasant places, poisons our wildlife and blights our countryside.

“It is only through the Government and communities working together that we will affect the long-term behavioural change that is needed to tackle this scourge and leave the environment in a better state than we inherited it.”
