WasteSorted Schools grants

The Waste Wise School program will launch a new grant program in February 2022 as part of the next round of grant funding in Term 1. The new grants, called WasteSorted Schools grants, make the eligibility criteria and application process simpler for all schools – encouraging even more schools to reduce their waste. Grants of up to $5,500 will be available. All accredited Waste Wise Schools are eligible to apply.

We will provide more information about the new process to schools in term 4, 2021.

Grants are offered to accredited Waste Wise Schools for the development of waste minimisation projects. These funds can be used to assist the school in reducing waste disposed of to landfill and in educating the whole school community about sustainable waste practices. View the success stories to see what schools have achieved.

Applications can only be submitted while the grant round is open and must be received prior to the deadline.


All grants are subject to funding availability.
