The first round for grants worth between $300,000 and $1 million under the federal Product Stewardship Investment Fund is open, focussing on e-waste.
According to the federal government, the $14 million round would help manufacturers and other organisations beef up programs dealing with products such as old computers and mobile phones. It is open to existing or new schemes.
Environment minister Sussan Ley said part of the investment “will recognise those industries that get on board and call out those that don’t participate.”
Applications are open until August 21 and more information can be found here.
