Waste 360 has been awarded a $66,496 grant from the NSW Planning, Industry and Environment Department to install a weighbridge at its new transfer station in Strathfield, NSW.
According to Planning, Industry and Environment Department Circular Economy Executive Director Sanjay Sridher, the grant was awarded under the Waste Less, Recycle More Initiative’s Weighbridge Fund.
“The weighbridge will enable Waste 360 to collect valuable data that helps to provide more accurate information on the volumes of waste and recyclables generated in NSW and supports improved environmental performance across the state,” he said.
Mr Sridher said this was the final round of funding under the Weighbridge Fund grants program.
“Over 35 waste and recycling facilities have received more than $2 million in grants under the Waste Less, Recycle More initiative to support the installation of weighbridges,” he said.
“This program has played an important role to support the modernisation of the waste sector in NSW. Better data collection through the use of weighbridges at licensed facilities improves understanding of the volumes of waste and recyclables, and facilitates the collection and payment of the waste and environment levy.”
