Resource recovery facility expansion and enhancement
Aim of the program
The Resource Recovery Facility Expansion and Enhancement program is a four-year grant program aimed to increase recycling of household and business waste. The program supports projects that stimulate and accelerate investment in new equipment and upgrades that will boost recycling processing capacity in NSW.
It should be noted that Construction and Demolition (C&D) operators are now able to access this program as the EPA recognises that the C&D waste sector has the potential to return large volumes of recovered material into the economy and thus reduce its environmental impact. Small and medium sized operators in the C&D waste sector are encouraged to apply to this funding round to improve the volume of materials recovered from C&D waste.
This program is being delivered through a partnership between the Trust and EPA under Waste Less, Recycle More's Waste and Recycling Infrastructure Fund. Additional information on this program can be found on the EPA website.

- Round 2 allocated $4,547,125 to nine projects. The list of successful projects and project summaries is available on the 2015 project summaries page.
