Overview

The Major Resource Recovery Infrastructure Program is designed to fund major resource recovery facilities in levy paying areas of NSW and which primarily process materials from these areas.

 

Background

The Major Resource Recovery Infrastructure (MRRI) program is part of the NSW EPA’s Waste Less Recycle More initiative.  It is a three year, $43.1 million grants project aimed to accelerate and stimulate investment in waste and recycling infrastructure and increase resource recovery to meet the NSW 2021 recycling targets.

The Major Resource Recovery Infrastructure Program is designed to fund major resource recovery facilities in levy paying areas of NSW and which primarily process materials from these areas. Proposed grants will be considered based on their ability to increase recycling of waste materials from households and businesses in a cost effective manner.

  • recovery of recyclables from sorted and unsorted waste from business and households
  • reuse, recycling and reprocessing of recyclable materials from business and households such as plastics, timber, paper, cardboard and consumer packaging
  • processing, stabilisation and energy recovery from residual business and household waste
