The Queensland State Government has announced $100 million over three years to the Resource Recovery Industry Development Program (RRIDP) to work with local governments and businesses. The program is designed to encourage removing waste from landfill.
The funding will target three areas of focus:
- Infrastructure or machinery up to $5 million on a dollar-for-dollar basis
- Incentives for the development of new large-scale facilities
- Support for advanced feasibility studies for innovative resource recovery, recycling and waste management projects
The RRIDP has been established to assist with the development of projects which will divert waste from landfill, reduce stockpiling and encourage activities which facilitate waste avoidance and increase recycling activities.
