Grants for biodiversity schemes

Biffa Waste Services is seeking applications to its 2010 Biffaward Flagship Scheme.
Grants are made from income received from the Landfill Communities Fund, and the
scheme is managed by the Royal Society of Wildlife Trusts. Flagship projects are
defined as community-led cultural or biodiversity schemes that have something unique
and exciting that no other project in the region or country has. Grants range from
£150,000 to £500,000. Projects must be site based and be within 25 miles of a Biffa
operation and 10 miles of any active landfill site. Expressions of interest are
required by 1 July 2010. Further details are available from
