Good causes

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 August to 31 October 2021.

Current good causes

The 3 good causes are:

Friends of Birch Hill

Friends of Birch Hill School are currently fundraising to improve their sensory garden for the children.

2nd Great Holland Brownies

2nd Great Hollands Brownies would use any funds raised to continue offering local girls the opportunity to build confidence, learn new skills, make friends, and have fun.

Friends of Binfield School

Friends of Binfield School are the PTA organisation for Binfield C of E Primary School. All money raised is used to directly enhance the educational environment of all the children at the School.

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.
