THE second round of the 2018 Loddon Mallee Fund is now open.
Councils, businesses, industry and community groups located in the Loddon Mallee Waste and Resource Recovery region and groups who provide services and activities within the region are invited to apply for the 2018 Loddon Mallee Waste and Resource Recovery Fund.
The fund opened on Thursday, February 15 and closes on Thursday, March 22. It is aimed at assisting councils, businesses, industry and community groups in the region to deliver best practice projects that help improve recycling, sorting and reduce the amount of waste going to landfill.
All projects must align with the strategies and actions in the key priority areas of the Loddon Mallee Waste and Resource Recovery Group Business Plan, and the Loddon Mallee Waste and Resource Recovery Implementation Plan.
The funding program will assist organisations to move closer to a circular economy, whereby waste resources remain in distribution, their value is enhanced and re-used or re-purposed, which reduces operating costs and environmental impacts for businesses and the whole community.
Each application can request funds up to and including $100,000.
