WasteSorted Grants – Infrastructure and Community Education 2020-21 (WasteSorted Grants) are a State Government initiative administered by the Waste Authority.
WasteSorted Grants provide funding for:
- recycling infrastructure development
- community education initiatives and events that contribute to waste avoidance and resource recovery.
WasteSorted Grants replace the Community and Industry Engagement (CIE) Program, which commenced in 2017 and has invested over $4.5 million in new infrastructure and programs to reduce waste and increase recycling in Western Australia.
The Waste avoidance and resource recovery strategy 2030 (waste strategy) contains objectives to avoid waste, recover more value and resources from waste, and protect the environment. Integral to this is supporting local recycling infrastructure, which helps to create jobs and minimise the costs and impacts of unnecessary transport, progressing the waste strategy’s vision of moving Western Australia towards becoming a circular economy. Also important is supporting work to change waste-related behaviour through education and the development of better-practice systems and processes.
WasteSorted Grants support projects which focus on the State Government's priority waste materials, including plastics, paper and cardboard, organics (including food organics), construction and demolition waste, metals, glass, textiles and hazardous waste.
