How the good causes scheme works
Nominations are open all the time. Every 3 months all the eligible causes will be put into a draw. The 3 successful ones will be contacted and all unsuccessful nominations will be carried forward to the next draw.
The current round of donations runs from 1 February 2021 to 30 April 2021.
Current good causes
The 3 good causes are:
Ascot and Cranbourne Preschool:
"At preschool we are raising money to renew our chairs and tables to enable our children to sit comfortably to enjoy their learning and key group activities as well as the all-important snack time and lunch! As a charity we rely on donations to purchase such items."
Jennett's Park Community Association:
"We would use to fund a second community access defibrillator for the Jennett's Park/Wykery Copse developments, establish first aid training for local children and provide free of charge emergency lifesaving (ELS) courses to interested local residents."
1st Priestwood Guides:
"1st Priestwood Guides provide a safe space for girls to be themselves, have fun, develop friendships, help the local community and gain valuable life skills. We provide a varied programme of truly affordable activities. We are run completely by volunteers but there are still costs involved in running the unit."
How to donate your points
To donate your recycling reward points to any of these causes, log in to your account.
A point counts as a vote, rather than a monetary value. The scheme is sponsored and currently £1,000 is available to be split between the good causes every 3 months. When the donation period ends, the points total is recorded and £1,000 is split between the 3 causes. The funds are split in proportion to the points donated to each cause.
The good causes scheme is currently being sponsored by our waste collection contractor SUEZ.
If you are interested in sponsoring the scheme please fill in the incentive scheme enquiry form.
