Grants are now open to help stop and clean up illegal dumping

These grants support local councils, public land managers and community groups to identify local illegal dumping sites and implement prevention and clean-up action on publicly managed land.

$1.5 million in grants is available to councils, public land managers and community groups to stop and clean up illegal dumping in their local area.

The grants are a part of the NSW Combating Illegal Dumping Clean-up and Prevention program which has awarded $6.7 million to projects to combat illegal dumping since the program commenced.

The grant program is funded under the Waste Less Recycle More initiative, administered by the NSW Department of Planning, Industry an Environment.

The grants can be used by councils, public land managers and community groups to implement prevention and clean-up action on publicly managed land or to establish illegal dumping baseline data.

Applications close on the 31st August 2020.
