A few grants and funding opportunities have recently opened around the country.
The NSW Government has released its fourth round of the Bin Trim program under the NSW Government Waste Less Recycle More initiative (WLRM).
The Bin Trim program provides funding to organisations to deliver waste assessments, support and advice to NSW businesses to help the businesses reduce their waste and increase recycling.
The recently awarded WLRM grants wrap up a spectacular year for MRA’s grants team. Over the four funding streams MRA helped our clients win over $11 million in grants for FOGO and infrastructure projects.
Through the Bin Trim program, MRA and Modern Shoes were able to divert close to 30 tonnes of waste from landfill, saving the business $21,600 per year.
The Queensland Government recently opened the Regional Recycling Transport Assistance Package (RRTAP) grants program offering up to $250,000 in funding for businesses and local government organisations to help fund the costs of transporting recyclable material from regional Queensland to facilities (within QLD or interstate), where it can be recovered or processed and turned into new products.
Green Industries SA recently opened the Recycling Infrastructure grants program offering up to $500,000 in funding for industry and local government organisations to install infrastructure and provide innovative approaches to increase the recovery of resources and reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill each year.
Sustainability Victoria recently opened the Bioenergy Infrastructure Fund grants offering a total of $750,000 in funding for government organisations (including state, local and federal), community organisations, businesses and social enterprises over two streams; Infrastructure and Business case or feasibility/technical study.
