Background

Grants of up to $250,000 are now available to help fund the costs of transporting recyclable material from regional Queensland to facilities where it can be recovered or processed and turned into new products.

The $6 million Regional Recycling Transport Assistance Package seeks to:

• provide interim support for regional Queensland to divert more resources from landfill and recycle additional material

• facilitate recycling which is currently unviable due to transport costs

• reduce the environmental and social impacts of waste on regional communities.

If you would like further information, please contact the department by phone on (07) 3330 5164, or by email at wasteprograms@des.qld.gov.au.
