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 2018 to 31 July 2018.

Current good causes

The 3 good causes are:

ARC Project for Binfield All Saints Church Roof

The church roof needs urgent repairs. It's a focal point of the village, providing community and outreach projects to promote inclusion and support local charities.

Littlesocs Childminding Group

A charity funded group for childminders and their minded children in the Sandhurst area, offering a weekly playgroup for play, crafts, socialising and making friends.

The Parks Scout Group

The Parks have started a Scout Troop for young people between 11-14 years old. They need funds to purchase specialist equipment.

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 three months. When the donation period ends, the points total is recorded and £1,000 is split between the three 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.
