E-waste Infrastructure Grants Program

Grants to support the e-waste to landfill ban by 2024.
Last updated: 3 April 2023

The State Government is delivering a statewide ban on e-waste disposal to landfill by 2024.

The ban supports the objectives in the Waste Avoidance and Resource Recovery Strategy 2030 to recover more valuable resources from waste and to protect the environment by managing waste responsibly.

The Department of Water and Environmental Regulation will administer $10 million in grant funding over the next two years through a series of competitive grant rounds. The grants will support the ban by funding increased e-waste collection, storage and/or reuse including e-waste processing/recycling.

The application process for Grant Round 1 closed on 31 March 2023.
