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 August 2018 to 31 October 2018.
Current good causes
The 3 good causes are:
Wildlife in Ascot
Wildlife in Ascot preserve and enhance the biodiversity in the area and learn more about what wildlife is around the area.
The pre-school needs funding to purchase new equipment and toys to ensure we continue to provide a quality childcare service in the local community.
Bracknell Limbcare offer advice and support to amputee/limb impaired individuals, communities, families and others impacted around them. They need to purchase wheelchairs and mobility scooters.
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.
