Small and large grants are available to fund eco-friendly projects that will encourage more people in the Capital to reduce, reuse and recycle.

Householders, community groups, youth groups and schools are all being urged to submit an application for funding by Monday 10 October.

A range of funding is available, from smaller grants of between £50 and £200 to larger grants of £500 to £2500.

Councillor Robert Aldridge, Environment Leader, said: “I would encourage local groups to make an application for the next round of grants.”
