The Victorian government has announced $5.7 million in grants through its Recycling Victoria Infrastructure Fund, which it says will help create 75 new jobs and add capacity to process an extra 436,000 tonnes of organics, 20,000 tonnes of glass and 40,000 tonnes of textiles per year.
Six projects received funding (see below) and would involve a total of $24.4 million in private spending.
“This funding boost will help Victorian businesses develop new opportunities for recycled materials, creating value from resources that would otherwise end up as waste,” said state environment minister Lily D’Ambrosio in a statement.
The grants awarded on Friday are listed below.
