The WasteSorted Community Education Grants program (WasteSorted Grants) is a State Government initiative administered by the Waste Authority.
WasteSorted Community Education Grants provide funding of up to $25,000 per project to improve waste behaviour in ways that support the aims of the Waste Avoidance and Resource Recovery Strategy 2030 (the waste strategy).
The waste strategy contains objectives to avoid waste, recover more value and resources from waste, and protect the environment. Integral to this is supporting behaviour change work through communication, education and the development of better practice systems and processes.
Preference in the 2022-23 funding round will be given to projects which:
- communicate messages for behaviour change consistent with the ‘WasteSorted’ and ‘Be a GREAT Sort’ communications materials
Achieving the avoidance targets will require an emphasis on the waste materials that, by weight, currently make up more than 90 per cent of the waste Western Australians generate:
