Regional and Remote Recycling Modernisation Fund

There are unique challenges for resource recovery in Queensland’s regional and remote communities. These include high transportation costs, access to recycling and remanufacturing centres and limited kerbside waste collection services.

The Regional and Remote Recycling Modernisation Fund provided grants of up to $500,000 for local governments and their industry partners to improve the viability of sorting, processing, recycling or remanufacturing of waste in regional and remote Queensland.

Funding was available for infrastructure projects that divert waste plastics, mixed and unsorted paper and cardboard, unprocessed glass or whole used tyres from landfill.

Eight Queensland projects were approved under this Fund, which will divert 18,780 tonnes of waste per annum from landfill, deliver a total of $4.76 million in capital investment, and create 25 jobs across regional Queensland.

This program is now closed to new applications.
