A key target of the 2019 National Waste Policy Action Plan (the National Action Plan) is to achieve an 80 per cent average resource recovery rate of all waste streams by 2030. To achieve this target, the National Action Plan recognises that regional and remote areas require better access to waste management and processing.
To help reach this target, the Australian and NSW Governments will co-fund projects that increase the sorting, processing, and manufacturing or remanufacturing capacity in regional and remote locations. Projects must focus on the waste streams impacted by the Council of Australian Governments’ Export Waste Ban (i.e. unprocessed glass, mixed and single polymer plastics, tyres, and mixed paper and carboard).
The areas of interest for this funding are all non-metro areas falling under the ABS classifications of inner and outer regional, remote and very remote areas.
Remanufacture NSW Regional and Remote Recycling Modernisation Fund is jointly funded by the Australian Government’s Recycling Modernisation Fund and the NSW Government’s Waste Less, Recycle More initiative. In NSW, the grant program is administered by the NSW Environmental Trust in partnership with the NSW EPA.
Remanufacture NSW Regional and Remote Recycling Modernisation Fund has awarded $4.8 million of funding to 8 projects
