COVID-19 Response and Recovery Fund: Waste minimisation and resource recovery initiatives
Open for applications
Waste facility operators can apply for funding for the purchase and installation of weighbridges from 1 July. The funding is targeted at new weighbridge projects in areas where there is underinvestment in weighbridge infrastructure.
The investment is part of a package of funding initiatives for waste and resource recovery infrastructure available through the COVID-19 Response and Recovery Fund. It will support the waste sector as it prepares for the waste disposal levy expansion in July 2021. It recognises the need for improved waste data and levy compliance.
The Ministry for the Environment (MfE) is managing the distribution of this funding based on strict criteria.
Decisions on applications will be announced in September 2021
