New grant opportunities to grow NSW resource recovery sector

The NSW and federal governments have announced $35 million in grants to support the remanufacture of recyclable goods, with applications open to local councils.

Grants of between $100,000 and $5 million will be allocated to fund eligible infrastructure projects (Stream 1), while eligible trial projects will receive between $50,000 and $1 million (Stream 2).

The grants are being made available through the Remanufacture NSW Fund, a joint initiative funded by the NSW Government and the Commonwealth’s Recycling Modernisation Fund and created in response to the Council of Australian Governments’ ban on overseas waste export.

Applications for the grants will be open until the end of March.
