This funded program rebates the landfill levy paid by charitable recyclers on unusable material left at their facilities.
A Charitable organisation licensed under the Western Australian Charitable Collections Act 1946 and:
- has obtained Deductible Gift Recipient status from the Australian Taxation Office
- collects or receives goods at public drop-off or donation points such as charity bins or shopfronts in the Perth metropolitan region, in accordance with a community service or activity that benefits the community.
Additional eligibility requirements are outlined in the guidelines.
Key Subjects: Charitable Recyclers
Charitable recyclers operate on a not-for-profit basis providing essential community services to Western Australians in need.
They regularly dispose of material that is illegally dumped at their premises (at donation bins or shopfronts), as well as well-intentioned but unusable donations that cannot be recycled or reused.
The cost of disposing of this material to landfill diverts significant funds from the main purpose of charitable recyclers.
The rebate supports their continued efforts to divert waste from landfill.
Terms and Conditions
- the collection activities undertaken by the organisation must be voluntary or not-for-profit and with no commercial interest
(they are undertaken exclusively to support the charitable purpose of the charitable recycler)
- the organisation must not sell or allow their brand to be used by commercial operators to solicit donated goods.
