WLRM Product Improvement Program grants now open
By MRA Consulting Group
The new grants provide funding to support the NSW resource recovery sector with responding to changes in recycling markets and mitigate the effects of China’s National Sword policy. The program supports investment in infrastructure projects that improve the quality of recycled materials, increase the amount of materials recycled in NSW or increase the use of recycled plastics, glass and paper/cardboard in the manufacture of products within NSW. The program targets paper/cardboard, plastics, glass, tyres, engineered and treated timber, e-waste and plasterboard however, preference will be given to projects that prioritise glass, paper/cardboard and plastics.
