Applications open for $10 million in regional Victorian recycling grants

Applications opened on Wednesday for round one of the Victorian Regional Recycling Fund, with grants up to $500,000 each available to upgrade resource recovery centres.

The funding would “strengthen regional Victoria’s recycling network” by upgrading regionally significant facilities, according to the government.  

“These regional facilities are the building blocks for a robust recycling network that will drive current and future material recovery in regional Victoria, supporting the creation of regional circular economies and jobs,” said state environment minister Lily D’Ambrosio.

Councils and private businesses could apply, with businesses “asked to contribute $3 for every $1 received” in grants.

Applications for the round close at 4pm AEDT on March 9. More information can be found at this link.
