Community clean ups & Litter grants

Supporting community groups and schools to clean up Argyll

The GRAB Trust is delighted to offer small grants of up to £700 per year to groups and organisations carrying out village or beach clean-ups in the Argyll and Bute local authority area.

Applying for a Litter Grant

Please start by informing one our project workers prior to carrying out your clean-up.
Contact details can be found in the information accompanying the application form.
The application form includes our criteria, contact details and other useful information.
Please submit your application after you have carried out your clean-up, with photos where possible.
The GRAB Trust can support your clean-up by lending your group cleaning equipment (litter pickers, gloves and bags), helping you carry out a risk assessment and organising the collection of the litter. Please get in touch with your local project worker for more information.
The grant can be spent as the group decides. Please be aware, however, that funding is limited, so submission of a claim does not guarantee that a grant will be awarded.

Beach plastics

We are now working with a company called Terracycle who collect beach plastics that might otherwise go to landfill due to contamination from sand and seaweed.
We are now asking groups to separate out the plastics from other marine litter, which is then collected at local council depots ready for Terracycle to collect. Please see form on how to do this.
