About Our Funding

Please note, as of May 2017 we will no longer fund sporting facilities. 

This includes but is not limited to: cricket nets, floodlights, bowling greens,  other pitch groundworks.


Sporting clubhouses or pavilions are still eligible but only if the building can demonstrate regular use by the wider community beyond the sports club or team.

Recreation is an activity of leisure for enjoyment, pleasure and development purposes, and every community should have access to high-quality recreational spaces. These spaces are pivotal in developing a sense of community and providing opportunities for improved health and wellbeing for people of all ages.

Biffa Award provides funding under the Recreation theme to projects that transform open spaces for the benefit of the community, providing them with more opportunities to become involved in recreational activity.

Examples of projects that fall under this category are green spaces, woodland walks, play areas and community gardens.

Your project must be based within 5 miles of a Biffa Operation or 10 miles of an active Biffa landfill site. Check your project’s location eligibility here.
