Are you a local community group? Do you collect or receive materials for recycling or reuse?
If yes, you might be eligible to get paid for every tonne of material that you collect for recycling or reuse!
What are Recycling Credits?
When waste is recycled rather than sent to landfill, North Lincolnshire Council makes a saving on the cost of disposing of the waste. This saving can then be passed onto the local community groups, charities, voluntary, not for profit groups and social enterprises who recycle household waste that is not normally collected or received by the council through bring recycling sites, Household Recycling Centres or via the kerbside recycling box scheme.
What are Reuse Credits?
Reuse credits are paid to local community groups, charities, voluntary organisations, not for profit groups and social enterprises who collect or receive bulky household items free of charge and which are then redistributed
Who can claim?
Local community groups, charities, voluntary organisation, not for profit groups and social enterprises that collect household waste for recycling or reuse with the focus on alleviating poverty in the local community. As part of the formal constitution, charitable reuse organisations should have an aim to alleviate poverty by providing household items to residents on low incomes in the North Lincolnshire area.
By providing financial support to the community and voluntary sector it will be possible to increase the amount that is currently recycled or reused by community and voluntary groups.
The definition of “bulky items” includes beds, sofas/settees, tables and chairs as set out on the agreed claim spreadsheet. Fixtures and fittings and small items such as books and CDs are not included. Washing machines, refrigerators, televisions, computers and any other electrical items are not eligible for credit payments.
