The second round of the Recycling Victoria Councils Fund is open to local councils and alpine resort management boards. This round forms part of a $5.9 million fund allocated to divert waste from being sent to landfill or increasing the volume of materials reused, repaired, repurposed or recycled.

Local governments may wish to explore innovative solutions that are tailored to their specific areas and circumstances. For example, cost-benefit analysis, business case development, feasibility studies, material flow analysis and pilots or trials are all projects that can be done.

Collaborative Partnerships are also encouraged that can support project delivery and maximise impact. The first round earlier this year resulted in $1.7 million awarded to local councils for 26 projects.

Funded projects will receive up to $80,000 for feasibility grants and up to $500,000 for implementation.

This fund is distributed through 2 streams; A feasibility stream that is currently open, closing 9 December 2021 and an implementation stream that opens early 2022.
