This program is designed to provide funding to support eligible councils with the collection and recycling of the metal components of burnt rural fencing materials from bushfire affected rural landholders. Supporting councils to collect and recycle burnt fencing materials will assist in the recovery of rural communities impacted by bushfire and ensure the safe and efficient disposal of this bushfire waste.
The objectives of FenceCycle are to
- support councils to increase the collection and recycling of the metal components of burnt rural fencing materials from their bushfire affected rural landholders
- encourage rural landholders to remove bushfire damaged fencing from their properties and avoid future environmental and economic risks associated with on farm/property disposal which is no longer considered good practice
- divert burnt fencing materials from landfill where possible to assist councils with the management and disposal of other bushfire disaster wastes.
- provide regional employment opportunities in bushfire affected communities
