Summary In May 2018, the State Government announced its recycling industry support package in response to China’s National Sword Policy. Round 1 of the recycling transport subsidies grants program closed in September 2018. The State Government has now opened Round 2 – which closes on 31 May 2019.

The State Government’s recycling industry support package included $500,000 for transport subsidies recognising the barrier of high transport costs for recycling in regional areas.  The aim of the recycling transport subsidies program is to ensure the continuation of recycling services in regional areas. 

Round 1 of the recycling transport subsidies program covered the six months to September 2018.  Round 2 of the program will subsidise council costs for the period October 2018 to June 2019.  Applications close on 31 May 2019. 

Guidelines on eligibility and how to access the funding is available at
