Grants help councils implement change

council grants

Sustainability Victoria is delivering the Recycling Victoria Household Education and Behaviour Change Program to help educate Victorians to better manage and reduce their household waste.

To support the delivery of local campaigns, the $6.03 million Recycling Victoria Household Education and Behaviour Change Fund will provide financial support to all Victorian councils and Alpine Resort Management Boards (ARMBs).

Applications for grants of up to $30,000 opened on 1 February 2022 and will be accepted until Tuesday, 15 March 2022.

The funding will help councils and ARMBs who are introducing new household recycling services or have already delivered a four-stream household recycling service.

The grant is funded through the government’s circular economy policy, Recycling Victoria: a new economy and is the second of four planned funding rounds.

The New Household Recycling Services under the Recycling Victoria policy are a glass-only recycling service (kerbside bin or drop-off), food organics and garden organics (FOGO) service (kerbside bin or drop-off), adding food organics (FO) to an existing garden organics (GO) service, expanding existing opt-in GO or FOGO services to the entire municipality and changing bin lid colours to be consistent across the state, achieving a 4-stream household recycling service.
