Charitable Recyclers Rebate

Supporting charitable recyclers efforts to divert waste from landfill

Charitable recyclers operate on a not-for-profit basis providing essential community services to Western Australians in need.

This funded program rebates the landfill levy paid by charitable recyclers on unusable material left at their facilities.

This program supports a key headline strategy in the Waste Avoidance and Resource Recovery Strategy 2030 Action Plan (Action 8.2). 

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.
 

Claims are submitted on a quarterly basis:  30 April  - 31 July - 30 October - 31 January
