Biffa Awards are part of the Landfills Communities Fund and currently provide funding for projects of between £10,000 and £75,000 under four different themes: Rebuilding Biodiversity, Community Buildings, Cultural Facilities, Recreation.

The Biffa Award Board meets three times a year, at each meeting the Board considers applications from two different themes. The next meeting will be held in June and will consider applications under its Recreation and Community Buildings funding themes. Funding under these themes is available to not-for-profit organisations with projects within 5 miles of a significant Biffa operation or within 10 miles of an active Biffa landfill site.

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

The Community Buildings theme can provide funding for the improvement or replacement of community buildings, examples of projects that fall under this category include replacement heating systems, extensions, repairs and the upgrading /installation of kitchen facilities.

The closing date for applications under these themes is the 20th April 2017.
