Hampshire County Council have created this fund to support locally based community groups, businesses, education establishments and organisations across Hampshire to deliver projects, products and services which prevent or reduce household waste.

Waste prevention is defined as measures taken before a substance, material or product has become waste.

For the purposes of this fund, ‘waste prevention’ is taken to encompass any actions which prevent or reduce the amount of household waste entering the local authority waste management system. This includes reuse, repair and home composting.

Household waste covers items that you would put in your waste bin at home or take to your local Household Waste Recycling Centre.  See a more formal definition of household waste: GOV.UK's Local authority collected waste definition of terms.

In addition to the environmental benefits of reducing household waste, waste prevention projects can also result in financial savings for residents, community benefits (such as volunteering opportunities) and health benefits (such as household management, healthy eating).

Who can apply?

  • Community, neighbourhood or voluntary groups
  • Registered charities
  • Schools, colleges and universities
  • Not-for-profit organisations (including social enterprises)
  • Businesses with fewer than 250 employees such as small and medium sized enterprises
