SUEZ and Surrey County Council jointly operate five Revive re-use shops across Surrey, selling pre-owned items for the home and garden and diverting over 1,000 tonnes per year away from disposal. Each year, 10% of net profits from the Revive re-use shops are donated to support local charities with over £58,000 donated locally since 2018. Organisations developing community, health and well-being and environmental projects in Surrey can apply for grants of any amount up to £10,000 through the Revive Community Fund. The purpose of the fund is to help improve community life and support the people and environment of Surrey, so this funding is only available for formally constituted, not-for-profit organisations that plan to spend the money on projects within the county. The organisation does not need to be based in Surrey, but the project must demonstrate a clear benefit to a community or environmental project in the county. All applicants must be formally constituted (e.g., club, registered charity, smaller groups) and must be not-for-profit organisations. Applications will be reviewed by SUEZ and Surrey County Council representatives who will award the funds. About SUEZ in Surrey: As part of a 25-year contract, SUEZ recycling and recovery UK works on behalf of Surrey County Council to manage the household waste that’s generated daily across the county. SUEZ operates a network of integrated waste management facilities including 15 Community Recycling Centres, 5 Revive re-use shops, 5 waste transfer stations, a gasification facility, and an anaerobic digestion facility. We believe that sustainability is the only business case – for our company, and ultimately, for the Earth, economy and everyone. We measure and report our performance against this triple test for the planet, people and profit. Surrey County Council community vision for 2030: By 2030 we want Surrey to be a uniquely special place where everyone has a great start to life, people live healthy and fulfilling lives, are enabled to achieve their full potential and contribute to their community, and no one is left behind. We want our county's economy to be strong, vibrant and successful and Surrey to be a great place to live, work and learn. A place that capitalises on its location and natural assets, and where communities feel supported and people are able to support each other.
