Litter Grants are for litter projects, not waste or recycling projects.

What is the difference between litter and waste?

Litter is something that people discard on the ground and is not in its right place. Think of plastic in the waterways, cigarette butts or discarded food and drink containers.

Waste is what is put into the bin and that’s all about resource recovery through recycling and reusing, and through sorting unwanted items into the right bin.
