Waste removal and disposal can often be a very expensive and time-consuming activity, particularly for community groups and charitable organisations.
Acknowledging its social responsibilities and encouraging the safe and responsible disposal of waste, HIPPO has introduced a scheme designed to help advance the support of members of local communities.
The ‘Grants up for Grabs’ scheme awards free waste disposal help to applications from charities, community groups and organisations from across the UK that inspire respect for the environment or have a positive effect on the community.
Waste disposal help for voluntary and community groups. Examples of eligible projects include:
- A small school clean up operation
- A home for disabled children and its gardens given a revamp
- Community construction project or a garden and landscaping initiative
- Community projects encouraging responsible waste disposal and recycling.
The scheme donates a free Hippobag and Hippowaste collection. Grants are not given.
If you think your project might be eligible for free help from the Grants up for Grabs scheme please contact us and tell us about your project.
One thing we do need to ask however is that if you are offered a free HIPPOBAG and collection grant, please ensure that you have read and understood our terms and conditions for using your HIPPOBAG, as there may be a cost incurred if the collection fails and we have to revisit.
