The NSW Government has created a $10 million fund to reduce landfilling of solar panels and battery systems. Phase 1 of the Circular Solar grants program (trial phase) awarded $1.1 million in funding for eligible trial projects.
The NSW Government Remanufacture NSW grants have been awarded with 22 projects receiving a total of $24m. Grant recipients have committed another $59m investment for a combined total investment of $83m across projects.
The Australian and NSW governments have developed Remanufacture NSW to support organisations to respond to the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) ban on the export of glass, plastic, tyres and paper/cardboard wastes and to enable a transition to a circular economy for waste export ban materials.
Two grants have recently opened. The first is available Australia-wide and is for industry-led research addressing gaps in Australia’s waste and recycling capability. The second is just for NSW and is focussed on trials for solar panel equipment recycling.
Contact MRA to find out how these grants can work for you and benefit your local area and Australia.
The NSW Government has released its fourth round of the Bin Trim program under the NSW Government Waste Less Recycle More initiative.
MRA is looking for waste collectors, processors and recyclers that wish to explore new ways for reducing waste to landfill and increasing recycling.
