Western Riverside Environmental Fund
The Western Riverside Environmental Fund was set up in April 1999 as a partnership between the Western Riverside Waste Authority and Groundwork UK. To date over £3.7 million has been made available to environmental projects within the boroughs of Lambeth, Wandsworth, Hammersmith & Fulham and Kensington & Chelsea. The fund utilises landfill tax credits arising from household rubbish and other waste handled by the Authority’s waste transfer stations at Smugglers Way, Wandsworth and Cringle Dock, Battersea. Contributions to the fund are made by Cory Environmental.
Applications are invited from projects that work with local communities to promote environmental improvements in the four boroughs.
