Opportunities for local charities

Camden Recycling Rewards launched in Autumn 2016 to reward residents of the London Borough of Camden for their recycling efforts. When residents recycle more they earn Green Points for their community, with 5 communities across Camden competing to earn the most Green Points.

As part of the scheme we will be giving £5,000 to local charity and community projects every six months. The communities with the most Green Points after six months will win the biggest donations. Residents can vote at any time for the charity or community project they would like to support.

In the first year of the scheme, Camden Recycling Rewards is supporting:

  • Clean Break
  • Sante Refugee Mental Health Access Project
  • Calthorpe Project Community Garden
  • Home Start
  • Holborn Community Association

Charities in Camden were invited to complete a short application form, with applications put before a Community Leaders Panel for a final decision. The panel was formed of:

  • Councillor Merik Apak, Cabinet Member for Sustainability and Environment (CHAIR)
  • Kevin Nunan, Office and Projects Manager at Voluntary Action Camden
  • Clive West, Senior Environment Services Project Officer, Camden Council
  • Richard Bradbury, Head of Environmental Services, Camden Council
  • Ann Baker, Principal Environmental Services Officer

Whilst these projects have been set for the first year, we would still like to hear from local charities and community projects that want to get involved in the scheme in the future. If your charity or community project would like to be contacted when we are accepting applications please email us at [email protected]. Similarly, if you would like any more information about how the scheme works then please get in touch.
