PRESS RELEASE - GROUNDWORK RECEIVES FUNDS TO DISSEMINATE
29th October 2000
Biffa Waste Services Ltd. have agreed to fund a dissemination campaign based on the Ollie Recycles Program and carried out by the team at Groundwork.
Groundwork is a federation of 44 local Trusts in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, each working with their partners to improve the quality of the local environment, the lives of local people and the profitability of local businesses.
Groundwork's purpose is "to build sustainable communities through joint environmental action".
Every year Groundwork deliver thousands of projects in neighbourhoods which are blighted by high unemployment and crime levels, poor public health, run-down housing and public spaces, waste ground and struggling businesses.
Biffa appreciates the good work carried out by Groundwork in the communities across the UK and believes the Ollie Recycles Programme will help show communities the importance of caring for their local environments through sustainable waste management principles.
