The former Community Grants Scheme (CGS) has now been incorporated into the Community and Industry Engagement (CIE) program.
From 2005 to 2018, CGS provided over $1.8 million to implement more than 200 small scale community projects to improve waste management practices and knowledge in communities all over Western Australia.
The Waste Avoidance and Resource Recovery Strategy 2030 was launched in February 2019. It provided an opportunity to combine the CGS and Engagement in Action programs under CIE to better support achievement of the objectives, targets, guiding principles and focus materials described in the new waste strategy.
