NSW Landfill Consolidation and Environmental Improvement grants
By MRA Consulting Group
The NSW EPA has opened the $13 million landfill consolidation grants program under the NSW Government Waste Less Recycle More initiative (WLRM).
The new grants support regional and rural councils in addressing identified environmental issues posed by landfill activities including end of life, site security and access, separation of materials and overall supervision. The program also contributes to minimising adverse impacts on human health as well as the environment through improving overall landfill operations.
