Waste 360 Pty Ltd receives $66,496 grant for new Strathfield facility
Waste 360 has been awarded $66,496 to be used towards the installation of a weighbridge at its new waste transfer station on Cosgrove Road, Strathfield, the NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment announced today.
“The grant has been awarded under the Weighbridge Fund, part of the Waste Less, Recycle More initiative,” Executive Director Circular Economy and Resource Management Sanjay Sridher said.
“The weighbridge will enable Waste 360 to collect valuable data that helps to provide more accurate information on the volumes of waste and recyclables generated in NSW and supports improved environmental performance across the state.”
This is the final round of funding under the Weighbridge Fund grants program which is part of the $48 million Waste and Recycling Infrastructure Fund, targeting household, business and industry waste.
Over 35 waste and recycling facilities have received more than $2 million in grants under the Waste Less, Recycle More initiative to support the installation of weighbridges.
This program has played an important role to support the modernisation of the waste sector in NSW.
Better data collection through the use of weighbridges at licensed facilities improves understanding of the volumes of waste and recyclables and facilitates the collection and payment of the waste and environment levy.
This grant will exhaust the Weighbridge Fund and the program is now closed.
