Waste Less, Recycle More provides $50 million for litter prevention over 9 years (2012-2021). This includes 2 related grant programs to target littering hotspots and the materials that most contribute to littering in NSW
- grants for local Council Litter Prevention projects
- Community Litter Grants administered by Keep NSW Beautiful in partnership with the NSW Environment Protection Authority (EPA)
Projects supported by the EPA's Litter Prevention Grants Program combine enforcement, infrastructure and education. They also make use of the Hey Tosser creative materials and Local Litter Check resources.
This funding will be supported by NSW’s first litter prevention strategy, which will set out actions and timeframes to achieve the Premier’s priority target to reduce the volume of litter in NSW by 40% by 2020.
