The Northern Tasmanian Waste Management Group (NTWMG) Resource Recovery and Waste Minimisation Grants program will allocate grants to eligible organisations in Northern Tasmania that are working to:
- decrease the amount of waste sent to landfill from core activities;
- increase the recovery of resources from waste that would otherwise be lost to landfill.
This funding program responds to the growing financial pressures associated with meeting landfill management, environmental and rehabilitation standards, as well as the need to reduce the strain on landfill space and the environment by improving recycling and the reuse of 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 region including Break O’Day, George Town, Launceston City, Meander Valley, Northern Midlands and West Tamar Council areas.
A total funding allocation of $70,000 is available under the 2019/20 Resource Recovery and Waste Minimisation Grants program.
Applications are open until 3.00pm 24th September 2019.
