Good causes

How does the good causes scheme work?

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 May 2019 to 31 July 2019.

Current good causes

The 3 good causes are:

COATS

COATS are looking to provide some new features and fittings to The COATS Centre for Older People after the current major repair and refurbishment.

Sandhurst Day Centre

The day centre will use the money to go toward our ongoing programme of updating and enhancing facilities as and when funds become available.

Bracknell Tuesday Stroke Club

The money would be used to help towards the running costs of the club. For example, transport, room hire, insurance and the cost of activities and events.

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 complete the incentive scheme enquiry form.
