Local Charities and Community Projects

Hackney Recycling Rewards launched in October 2016 to reward residents of the London Borough of Hackney for their recycling efforts. When residents recycle more they earn Green Points for their community, with 21 wards across Hackney competing to earn the most Green Points.

As part of the scheme we will be giving £7,500 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.

Nominations now open

We are now asking our members to nominate their favourite good causes, with the most popular projects chosen to appear on the website.

Only nominations from registered member of Hackney Recycling Rewards will count, so if you'd like to feature, encourage your supporters to join the scheme at www.hackney.gov.uk/recycling-rewards and head to the nomination form.

There are a few criteria that projects need to meet in order to be a part of the scheme:

  • Your project provides either tangible social/and or environmental benefits for people within the London Borough of Hackney.
  • Applications for grants will be considered only from properly formed groups, within the area, that have structure, constitution and/or rules or who can demonstrate they are working towards this status.
  • You must have a bank account in the name of your organisation, and the account must have at least two signatures on it, elected from the Management Committee.

If that sounds like your project, then get your supporters involved and get those nominations in!
