The Northern Tasmanian Waste Management Group’s annual grant program is now open.

The NTWMG’s Resource Recovery and Waste Minimisation Grants Program will allocate grants to eligible organisations in northern Tasmania that are working towards decreasing the amount of waste sent to landfill from core activities and/or increasing the recovery of resources from waste that would otherwise be lost to landfill.

This funding program responds to the increasing financial pressures associated with meeting landfill management, environmental and rehabilitation standards, as well as the need to reduce the strain on landfill airspace and the environment by recycling and reusing materials.

Financial support will be provided for eligible project costs associated with procuring infrastructure or educational materials necessary to improve waste management practices in the northern Tasmanian area.

A funding allocation of $50,000 is available under the 2015/16 Resource Recovery and Waste Minimisation Grants Program.

Grant submissions close 3pm Friday 30 October 2015. Download the application guidelines and application form for more information on the grant program.
