Applications are now open for the $10 million E-waste Infrastructure Grants Program, which supports the state’s e-waste collection and recycling network, as part of the State Government’s election commitment to deliver a ban on e-waste disposed to landfill by 2024.

Funding will be administered over two years, to support projects under two streams: 

  • Stream 1 - E-waste collection and storage and/or reuse grants (up to $250,000) for new or upgraded facilities to increase capability and capacity to manage and store e-waste before reuse or onward reprocessing, for collection and storage projects 
  • Stream 2 - E-waste reprocessing infrastructure grants (up to $2 million) for projects that increase capacity and capability in the state’s e-waste management network, and include equipment purchase and installation and new or upgraded infrastructure for e-waste reprocessing and recycling.

Applications opened on 6 February, and close on 31 March 2023.
