Victorian Investment Support Grant – Packaging (ISGP) kicked off late last month supporting Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs), Not for Profits (NFPs) and social enterprises to pursue packaging waste reduction or recovery opportunities.
Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change Lily D’Ambrosio announced that grants up to $50,000 are available to encourage businesses to develop new ways to reduce, reprocess or remanufacture packaging waste, with total funding over $450,000.
The aim is for packaging waste to be turned into new products, reduce generation of packaging waste, increase or improve recovery of packaging waste, manufacture packaging using recovered materials.
The costs will support capital purchases – including infrastructure or equipment and other expenditure directly related to the project.
Delivering on two or more of these objectives will be sufficient, and diverting either plastic, paper/cardboard or glass from landfills is compulsory.
These funds are part of the Government’s $515 million investment to transform the waste and recycling sector, including $380 million towards Recycling Victoria: a new economy, helping to position Victoria as the national leader in recycling.
