Event description

Description

What's it about?

The NSW Environmental Trust has opened the fourth round of grants to fund the construction of Community Recycling Centres (CRCs) for the collection of household problem waste. Your council has been identified in a priority area to establish a CRC for this round of funding due to its population and distance from nearby CRCs.

Agenda

The aim of the information session is to share the experiences of established CRCs and to discuss opportunities for a CRC in your local area.

The day will focus on providing you with the key information you need to advocate for a CRC and develop a successful grant application. Key topics that will be addressed:

  • Household problem waste program update
  • Overview of Round 4 Community Recycling Centres grants and future directions
  • Grant guidelines and application processes
  • Local barriers and opportunities in establishing a CRC
  • Case studies - an overview of various implementation models
  • Site visit - Canada Bay Community Recycling Centre

Who should attend?

It is recommended that staff members from your waste management and/or environmental services team attend the information session. Multiple council representatives are welcome to attend. There will be plenty of opportunities to ask questions, network and discuss your application or any concerns with EPA and Environmental Trust staff.

Registration is free and closed on the 8th September 2017. Morning tea and lunch will be provided.

On the day logistics

The morning information session will be held in Parramatta. UWS, Parramatta CBD Campus is a short walk from Parramatta train station. Nearby parking is available at Secure Parking, 71 George St, Parramatta.
