The New South Wales Environment Protection Authority (EPA) has released a timetable for the next four years of Waste Less, Recycle More grants. Waste Less, Recycle More Grants are aimed at stimulating new investment to transform waste and recycling in NSW. The grants assist Local Councils to recycle more and reduce dumping and littering in their local government areas.
The Grants program is designed to modernise the waste sector in NSW, including for local councils to improve the delivery of waste services to the community and to ensure a clean environment.
Local Councils are encouraged to participate in reducing waste and litter whilst increasing recycling.
A full timetable of the grants is available on the EPA Website.
Funding for the next four years is $337 million including $30 million for litter reduction grants, $4 million of that is specifically for Council litter grants and $70 million is for Council’s waste and resource recovery projects.
