The program is designed to establish or enhance business circular economy networks where member businesses have commonalities relating to location, supply chain, industry sector or specific waste materials. Projects should feature an emphasis on waste avoidance and stimulating the circular economy. They should support solutions that are mutually beneficial, increase efficiency and are financially viable.
Grant funds will support network facilitators to manage the network and support collaboration, training and information sharing. Bin Trim waste assessments for businesses within the network will also be funded and these will be conducted by trained assessors using the Bin Trim app.
The new Bin Trim Networks program opened on 12 December 2022. Applications close at 11:59pm on 24 March 2023.
