This grant will support projects that provide new infrastructure and technologies which significantly increase recycling capacity for difficult to recycle plastic packaging or textile materials.

WRAP is looking for organisations that are creating new methods of recycling plastics or textiles in England. The project must demonstrate that it goes beyond ‘state of the art’ i.e. beyond current industry norm, and it must have a measurable impact, e.g. in terms of quantity in tonnes, of plastics or textiles collected.

How much funding can I apply for?

WRAP will be funding projects of between £200,000 and £1 million.

Candidates will be shortlisted based on the following criteria:

  • Eligibility of applicant and project location
  • Eligibility of project activity
  • Ability to deliver the project, demonstrating timescales and experience
  • Potential project impact, including proposed monitoring

You can find out more about eligibility criteria, key dates, and instructions to apply in the guidance and FAQ documents, available on the WRAP website
