Program snapshot

Category: Recycling Innovation Fund

Eligible bodies: Industry, councils, not-for profit, tertiary/research organisations.


Status: Currently closed for applications. An announcement about further funding rounds will be made in 2018.

Managed by: NSW Environmental Trust


The Recycling Innovation Grants Program is aimed at innovative projects that will provide new recycling infrastructure solutions, establish (or expand) recycled material markets through research and development, and improve and introduce new approaches and technologies to increase the efficiency of recycling facilities for priority problem wastes.

Wastes targeted as priorities under both streams of the program are 'problematic' materials that are not captured under other Waste Less, Recycle More programs, do not have existing mature markets or are contaminating waste streams that could otherwise be recovered if they were removed.

Delivered by the NSW Environment Protection Authority (EPA) and the NSW Environmental Trust, this program encourages collaboration of industry and research organisations to achieve these goals.
