The Electricals Recycling Fund aims to grow existing methods or test new creative and practical ones for recycling household electricals. They can fund two types of projects – those seeking to grow or develop existing household collection services for small household electricals, and those seeking to innovate new collection methods.

  • Growing existing services: Organisations can apply for funding for projects that aim to grow or improve existing household waste and recycling collection services.
  • Innovating new methods: Organisations can apply for funding for projects that aim to innovate or test new approaches to collect electricals for reuse and recycling. They may consider further funding should the project demonstrate value for money and significant impact.

For more information on the two types of funding, please visit the Material Focus website.
