WasteSorted Schools grants

Funding for accredited schools

WasteSorted Schools grants provide funding for schools to set up infrastructure and initiatives that avoid and recover school waste. Funding is available for projects that divert waste from landfill, such as paper and cardboard, food waste, single-use packaging and recycling. These projects aim to educate and engage students and the school community in waste avoidance and recovery practices. Grants of up to $5,500 are available. All WasteSorted Schools with accreditation for the current calendar year are eligible to apply.

Next grant round dates:

  • Round 1 will open Wednesday 31 January, and close 4pm Tuesday 12 March, 2024. 

  • Round 2 will open Monday 3 June, and close 4pm Tuesday 6 August, 2024.

All applications must be completed and submitted through the Department of Water and Environmental Regulation’s SmartyGrants portal
