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 November 2017 to 31 January 2018.

Current good causes

The 3 good causes are:

Birch Hill Pre-School

Birch Hill Pre-School is a charity run pre-school. They would desperately love a great outside space and are fundraising for this at the moment.

1st Warfield Girl Guides

1st Warfield Guides is a thriving guiding unit to be proud of and they are in need of new camping equipment.

POP - Power of Parenting

Power of Parenting supports and funds Bracknell's fostered children to further their education at university.

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.
