The WasteSorted Community Education Grants program 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 (waste strategy).
The waste strategy outlines 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.
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:
Applications must be submitted through the Department of Water and Environmental Regulation’s SmartyGrants portal by 12:00 pm (noon) Australian Western Standard Time (AWST) on Monday 28 August 2023.
Setting up a SmartyGrants account is free and previous SmartyGrants users can use the same account.
We held a webinar on how to apply for a WasteSorted Community Education Grant on 19 July 2023.
