Litter Binfrastructure grant

This grant scheme has been created to support the release of the 'Binfrastructure - The right bin in the right place' guidance released by WRAP on behalf of Defra in October.  

Please note that local authorities need to have a Litter Strategy in place in order to be eligible for the grant.

The scheme is open to local authorities based in England and shall award capital grants of between £10,000 and £25,000 to successful applicants for the purchase and installation of new bins, with the aim of providing infrastructure in identified litter-prone 'hotspot' locations. 

Applicants are required to already have a Litter or Binfrastructure Strategy in place at their local authority. If your local authority has a Litter Strategy in place and would like funding to support it, please download an application pack. 

Please note: Applications for this grant will follow a single-stage assessment process. There is a finite budget of £2million set for this scheme. Grants shall be awarded on a 'first come first served' basis, until the total funds have been fully allocated within a set timeframe.The scheme is open to Litter Authorities (not including parish and town councils) based in England.

Applications will be assessed on a rolling basis. We aim to share outcomes of assessments 3 weeks after submission.  Applications are open for registration from Thursday 17 December until Friday 19 February 2021 at 13.00. Please email your application to

If you meet the eligibility criteria detailed in the guidance, we welcome an application from you.
