Charities and community projects

Slim Your Bin launched in November 2016 to encourage 'bin dieters' across Warwickshire to recycle more and waste less in order to slim down their rubbish bins. When dieters take actions to cut the amount of waste going into their bins they earn points for their community. Four communities across Warwickshire are competing to earn the most points and win a £650 charity donation. Dieters can vote at any time for the charity they would like their community to support.

During the first 6 months of the scheme Slim Your Bin is supporting:

  • Parkinsons UK
  • Bo Children's Hospital
  • Veterans Contact Point Armed Forces Centre
  • Oral Health Foundation
  • Lifespace

Whilst these projects have been set for the first year, we would still like to hear from local charities and community projects that would like to get involved in the scheme in the future. To express your interest, please email us at [email protected].
