Supporting Local Councils in Cornwall

Keep Britain Tidy Fund for Local Authorities

The Keep Britain Tidy Chewing Gum Task Force Grant Scheme is open for expressions of interest here.

The Chewing Gum Task Force brings together major chewing gum producers, including Mars Wrigley and Perfetti Van Melle, as well as some producers of nicotine replacement therapy gum and is administered by environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy.

Grants of up to £20,000 are available to individual councils in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales to fund street cleansing and/or the purchase of cleaning equipment. Larger grants of up to £70,000 are available for two or more councils working together to achieve greater impact. Councils will also benefit from a bespoke gum litter prevention package, including targeted behaviour change signage and advice to encourage people to bin their gum.

Formal applications will be welcomed in a two week window between Monday 9 and Monday 23 May 2022, and decisions will be announced by the end of May 2022.

Full details of the scheme and the application process can be seen here: Chewing Gum Task Force | Keep Britain Tidy
