Applications are now open for the Northern Tasmanian Waste Management Group (NTWMG) Resource Recovery and Waste Minimisation Grants program!
Financial support is available to eligible organisations in northern Tasmania that are working to decrease the amount of waste sent to landfill from core activities and/or increase 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. Please see below for eligibility criteria, Grant Guidelines and the 2017/18 Application Form.
The grants are 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 $70,000 is available under the 2017/18 Resource Recovery and Waste Minimisation Grants program.
