The Victorian government has announced grants of between $50,000 and $300,000 to support projects using recycled glass, paper, cardboard, plastic and rubber.
The first round of the Sustainable Infrastructure Fund was announced on Thursday, with assistance open for councils and alpine resort management boards in the state.
The round is open until 3 pm on October 8. The announcement of a second round of funding is planned for that month and the third for January 2021.
According to Sustainability Victoria, the fund aims to:
– improve confidence in using products made from recycled materials;
– demonstrate performance of existing products and standards;
– increase the quantity of recycled products being sold in Victoria; and
– support organisations to try new technology and processes.
