The Community and Industry Engagement program (CIE) is a State Government program administered by the Waste Authority which supports projects that contribute to the Waste Avoidance and Resource Recovery Strategy 2030 (the Waste Strategy) objectives and targets.
The Waste Strategy contains objectives to avoid waste, recover more value and resources from waste, and protect the environment.
In line with the new Waste Strategy objectives, the CIE program has been revised to provide support for recycling infrastructure.
The Waste Strategy identifies support for local recycling infrastructure as important for meeting the strategy’s targets, and advocates moving Western Australia towards a circular economy. A circular economy provides opportunities for local recycling to create jobs, and minimise the costs and impacts of unnecessary transport.
The CIE program has two streams
CIE provides funding for the development and implementation of waste management projects, infrastructure, initiatives and events that contribute to waste avoidance and resource recovery and/or recognise the adoption of improved waste management practices and achievements.
Please subscribe to Waste Authority news to receive details of future funding rounds.
This program supports a key headline strategy in the Waste Avoidance and Resource Recovery Strategy 2030 Action Plan (Action 8.2).
Applications for the latest round of CIE closed on 23 September 2019.
An information session on the program was held at 2.00 pm, Tuesday 3 September 2019 at the Department of Water and Environmental Regulation, Prime House, 8 Davidson Terrace, Joondalup.
