Grant opportunities: recycling research and recycling of solar panels

Two grants have recently opened. The first is available Australia-wide and is for industry-led research addressing gaps in Australia’s waste and recycling capability. The second is just for NSW and is focussed on trials for solar panel equipment recycling.

Contact MRA to find out how these grants can work for you and benefit your local area and Australia.

Bin Trim Round 4 – Recyclers wanted

Can FOGO work in MUDs?

Following up on Virginia Brunton’s well received “Where to with food waste” article, Mike Ritchie discusses FOGO in MUDs.

Mike argues that collecting FOGO from MUDs is not just feasible, it is necessary. Getting food and garden waste out of all households will:
– reduce #waste to #landfill by 50% or more
– save up to 2.7% of Australia’s GHG emissions and
– produce millions of tonnes of soil enhancing compost.
